This is a discussion on Caulerpa? within the Beginner Saltwater Aquariums forums, part of the Saltwater Fish and Coral Reef Tanks category; -->
Curious about the stuff.. I realize there seems to be tons of species but.. Is it readily available in the trade? Easy to care ...
Any Marine fish store should have it, I have some in saltwater sump.
It is growing like crazy and is attached to the few pieces of live rock I have in the sump. I have a 13w CFL light on it on a 12 hour reverse photo period from the main tank (tank lights off, sump light on)
Oh that's great!
I found out about it reading on brackish tanks, and if it's as much of a pest as you say, I'm sure it'll do fine in brackish water.
Does it provide the same use as plants in a freshwater tank?
I could acclimate some over while doing the fish, but I want something fast growing so I won't need to do a cycle and caulerpa sounds like it does the job. I don't find removing excess to be much hassle.
