I have read that turtle weed aka maiden hair requires a certain level of care to keep this algae.

Would not recommend for newbies. Usually either it thrives or dies in your tank. Here is a link for more info.

Ironically, you can find turtle weed growing on our local beaches as well.

It's usually an easy plant, if u have chiller and enough light. My yellow tang leaves it alone. Only turtles and a specie of goby eat it. It spreads fast.

Wow I must have been very suay.. One day put in the next day all eaten up... Maybe I should try again

Its not an easy algae.

Please do not mix turtleweed and hair algae, they are different. Hair algae propagates, Turtleweed very slowly if they dun wither.

Turtleweed shimmer in tank nicer than hair algae, i.e smooth in the flow.

Advise not to waste money.
