What is the lifespan of a single filament of hair algae? Inquiring minds...

...want to know. I mean, for what I know the stuff could be immortal, but surely each cell undergoes some sort of mortality.


Salinity 1.024-6; alkalinity 8.3-9.3 on KH scale; calcium 420; magnesium 1300, temp 78-80, nitrate .2. Ammonia 0. No filters: lps tank. Alk and cal won't rise if mg is low.

Current Tank Info: 105g AquaVim wedge lps reef: 3 firefish, yellowhead jawfish, yellow watchman, 3 chromis, tailspot/starry blennies, pink margin fairy wrasse, mandarin, kalk, radion pro, gyre, Eshopps s-200 skimmer, basement sump.

Nope... gha is definitely immortal... and it is pretty much invincible too..

According to the national inquirer.. scientist st the University of Zimbabwe have figured out how to splice the genes of gha with a human to give us immortality...
It causes the patients hair to turn green though.. and kinda smelly.. so they are still working on the formula..
