Caulerpa algae, also known as Leafy Caulaerpa, are green algae with root-like rhizomes with which they attach themselves to the substrate. They are very popular in the reef hobby as they are easy to keep, have few demands on their environment and grow quickly.
Care of Caulerpa prolifera
Caulerpa prolifera can grow up to 15 cm high. Even though it is less common with Caulerpa prolifera than with related species, if the population grows too densely, it can suddenly collapse. Therefore, it is important that you regularly clear out the macroalgae. Avoid direct contact with corals, as Caulerpa can inhibit their growth. We recommend this algae primarily for algae refugium or macroalgae tanks.
