This hardy green algae is commonly used in refugia and algae scrubbers, where large masses of the plant can be kept with minimal packing. It grows in long, curvy, rigid strands that create a framework with ample inner space that provides shelter for a diversity of small, beneficial benthic creatures such as pods.

*Please note that while we go to great lengths to treat, quarantine and remove any unwanted parasites, hitchhikers, and other organisms from our macro algae we do not guarantee that this item is completely and totally free of anything unwanted.
