Tumble your tropical macroalgae like never before with the ORA Pom Pom Gracilaria! This maroon colored and uniquely shaped macroalgae grows in spherical clumps. A great element to add to high flow refugiums, algae reactors and inventive displays. Great as a natural fish food and for absorbing excess nutrients.
This Macroalgae is a hardy, sub-tidal red algae that attaches to limestone or occasionally to basalt substrates. If it is to be added in the tank frequently for feeding purposes, it is best to grow it in a refugium or in a separate tank. It can be placed anywhere in the aquarium, and it will easily take root and grow, if provided with proper lighting and water conditions.
To keep it healthy and growing, it requires a 12 hour lighting schedule with a high output lighting, and good filtration. It is very important to change the water often to replenish any elements that may have been absorbed by the macroalgae.
