Its something i can get from our SW supplier at the LFS where i work, but other than satisfying my curiosity, i don't know what else it is good for. I guess its some sort of seaweed or algae, but looking it up on a search engine i only find general info.

I like macro algaes and they are rarely on the "available" list at work so i am tempted to buy anything that hints as being a plant i can stick in my SW tank (but research first).

So, does anyone know more about it? Like what is the sp. most commonly sold to hobbyists, is it sold for tang food, or for nutrient export, pod breeding hideouts? Or is it basically a nuisence who'd ugly head hasn't come up all the way yet?

Thanks for any info :)

Checking the Elemental Chart ... Helium, Lithium, Beryllium, Potassium, Calcium, Scandium, Titanium, Vanadium .... nothing about Codium. This is a new one for me.

LOL i have heard of this one ! some people use it in seahorse tanks
it is a calcium kinda macro like hamalide (spelling) so it uses calciumm to grow, so no tnags won't eat it. it does not grow too fast, but it is cool and branching, there are 2 main species sold in trade one is from the pacific and does not do well in a tropical tank (seahorse tanks are kept cooler 72-74) and the other is tropical. sorry i don't ahve specific names for you, but def watch that when choosing.

cool little plant though
i think there is more info to be had on it over at seahorse.org in the macro algea forum - this was my post
