I know it is very cool looking. I got it from a friend's tank. He got a 3 inches branch and one of them felt off, so I took it.

To me....it looks like "Dasya"....I tried to google it, it seems to be some type of algae.

I just want to know if it is for Ornament, Nutrient export, or Nuisance....I just want to make sure if it is safe for my tank.

^THIS.

Dasya iridescens would be my guess.
