unique form of
calcareous algae that features tight, segmented discs, found
attached to rocks, sandy bottom and other algae. This particular
species does not possess a rhizome as other species of halimeda,
but is an encrusting variety that spreads both laterally and
horizontally. These are hardy specimens collected from the
Caribbean, that do very well in tanks with high calcium levels
such as reef aquaria. Sold as a cluster approximately 6"-
8" in diameter.
This species will often appear white or pale when shipped without light, but will
return to the bright green coloration upon proper aquarium
lighting within a few days.
