Red Nemastoma Propagation Info

Thanks to a Positive ID by got2envy i now know that what i have is red Nemastoma. Some type of rareish macro algae.


I will be willing to sell/trade as soon as i see some spreading so i can keep the mother plant alive and thriving.

So, if anyone has any info or advise in how to grow this faster, better, stronger it would be much appreciated, he faster it grows the faster i can frag out to you guys.

12 gal jbj
skimmer rated for 40 gal
50 watts PC
fuge with cheato and caulerpa

water params perfect

feed reef nutrition twice-three times a week

grow lil' weed grow!!

ditch the skimmer

no just let it grow on it's own...the Caulerpa and cheato I am sure are sucking up nutrients tho, I dunno how fast this grows to begin with.
how has the growth been on it since u first noticed it?

its been in 4 different tanks now, lol
it started growing in a 30 i had about a year and a half ago when i didnt know anything about keeping a reef(15 watt t8s). then, it was in an 8 gal biocube at my work, it started to take off here, then in my 90 gal which i had up for about a month before my girlfriend was like, oh my parents are moving in june and i had to break it down, ahhhhh!!!!, and now its in my 12 gal nano, and grwing noticably larger each few days or so. I think im going to kick up the feeding abunch considering i have a fuge and skimmer. http://i917.photobucket.com/albums/a...n/_MG_8015.jpg
