Success with Caulerpa | Please guide

Recommended Posts

Dear all,

I always buy Caulerpa and it either get split up or going pale in a week.

I kept in bottom of tank with low flow.

My fishes are not hurting it but still failing.

All my corals doing well.

Please let me know what to be done.

You mean you keep the Caulerpa in the sump tank? Are there any lights? If yes, how long do you have it switched on? If it turns pale, it is either going asexual or dying off.

Mine used to be very prolific when I have the lights on for 12-16 hours.

What are your nutrient levels? Apparently they prefer higher levels. I have some serrulata which were like dormant for a wk after I introduced them. Ever since they have been sprouting new growth
