Hi All-
Looking to ID this Red coarse macro that is in my DT:

It grows into nice little bushes anywhere it lands so I've been leaving it as every time I pull it more patches crop up. Any idea on what it is and bonus points for what eats it!

TIA folks

Looks like a close-up of gracilaria to me. Some tangs will munch on it.

Glad yours grew slow, this stuff grows like wild fire in my tank.

Upshot: Recently added Scopas tang was caught munching on it which I did not expect at all. Hopefully he continues to have a taste for it.

This is mostly gone from my DT now, the Scopas eats whatever he can find of it which makes me happy.
