    I am currently running chaeto and caulerpa in my refegium. Are both of these beneficial together? Should I remove the Caulerpa before it "goes sexual" thanks!!

    I am conducting an experiment to see what causes Caulerpa Racemosa to sexually reproduce. I am testing cell signaling with strands which have already converted to sexual, and proliferation of phosphates, nitrates, or carbon dioxide. Does anyone have ideas as to what else might cause the change...

    Not sure exactly what type of algae this is but I think it's Caulerpa. It hitched hiked in about a year and a half ago and has just recently become an issue. It seems like it has been worse since I have been running my reactor with phos ban in it. Now it is everywhere and I am not sure how to...

    hi TRF! I got this caulerpa prolifera(i think) from my LFS about 2 weeks ago and lately its been turning into this white/clearish appearance. I thought it wasn't getting enough light or nutrients so after doing some research I found out that it might be going 'sexual'. Has this ever been a...

    I have an out of control chaeto outbreak in my tank. It got up in my refugium and i cannot remove it manually. I was thinking using a longspine sea urchin to get rid of it but i know little about them. Can someone tell me of a good urchin to use to get rid of this stuff. Any other suggestions...

    I live 2 miles from the beaches in Pinellas County, (Saint Pete/Tampa) Florida. 1/2 mile from the intercoastal waterway. I frequently snorkel and fish the waters here. Does anyone know if there are any good macro algae that I can get from the waters here safely? I have been trying to buy...

    Bought some chaeto from reefcleaners.org and ended up with some Caulerpa as well and it's growing like weeds in my display. Any feedback on good predators of this thing would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Hi! Decided my eel was outgrowing his small 3 gallon tank so i went out and bought a 10 gallon for him. This tank is saltwater and has about 3-4 pounds of LR so in a week or so i am ordering a 6500k bulb and fixture along with chaeto, caulerpa and then maybe buying some mangrove shoots. This...

    So last couple of days its been looking like hair algae has been growin in single pieces on my glass spaced about an inch apart but upon closer inspection they are infact caulerpa! very small but deffinetely caulerpa, what should i do?
  17. General Reef Discussion
    just figured out that's what we have growing with the hair algae(caulerpa is only a small piece) so as title suggests is it good or bad- everything I've read so far is indecisive

    I've read several posts that say its safe to prune grape caulerpa by pinching the white runners for several minutes before cutting it. Was wondering is this safe or is there a better way to prune?(or should I just leave it alone??) I am trying to encourage it to grow more and get ahead of the...

    "Until your stony corals are well-established, you may need to consider removing the macroalgae from the tank, and concentrate on building a biotope that does not have competition via allelopathic mechanisms against stony corals. " This is a quote from you/Tom in a different thread. I...
