Due to climate changing, the variations and volume of quite colourful marine algae here in SEQ is nothing sort of breath taking at most sites.
Amazing blue shades of Padina becoming more common, capensis variations are out of this world, Hypena not just in blue or aqua green, but in pinks and reds as well, Dictyota in reds, blues, purple, yellow and green to name just a few and a few of those that are in these pics.

Yep the capensis and the padina are both that way inclined.
