Macroalgae For Marine Reef Aquariums: Bryothamnion Sp. ecosystems
   

Fauchea

This is a unique and beautiful species of red macroalgae native to the Caribbean that we collect on occasion. It is rare and sporadic in growth. The wild colonies typically grow as solitary specimens in depths of up to 20 ft and can be difficult to locate due to their camouflaged coloration. The fronds have a metallic, iridescent appearance on top and are a deep red color underneath. Each thin, flattened frond is tooth shaped but can also be slightly rounded on the edge. We only find a few specimens each year in the area where we collect so this species is somewhat rare. Although we don't typically offer "frags" of algae, this particular species is sold as a 2-3" piece.
