I found this macro from a fellow reefer who has had it for many years but never found the name for it. It seems like it will be a caulerpa variety of some sort but i dont know what exactly it is.
it seems to grow farely quickly. Anyone have any ideas of what it is??

Nice! Thank you for the quick response.
How come I don't see many other people with this? Is it a less desirable variety?

This may be the first algae ID post I've seen with good pics! THAT'S how you get results. Nicely done! I think GCE sells it, but you're right, you don't see it much. I like it! I assume it has the usual up, and downsides of caulerpa. Keep us informed on your experience with it!

Thank you lol. So far it's doing really well growth-wise. Soon I'll be trimming it back like the rest of the macro.
