LIVE 3" to 5" COLONY of Codium Fragile Macro Algae- Dead Mans Finger
GROWS FAST WHEN KEPT UNDER FULL SPECTRUM.
This algae features very rich dark green, cylindrical branches connected by a single holdfast to rocks, shell fragments and other hard objects. The branching is irregular and features soft fuzzy filaments at the tips resembling the fingers of a sponge, it can provide a hiding place / perch for crabs & shrimps and will do best when wedged between two rocks in moderate flow at low / mid tank height and does best in cooler semi shaded areas. A colony can grow as large as 12" tall. This particular macro algae is not palatable to fish or invertebrates so it can be kept in the main display tank with no issues. This is also a suitable species for growing in a refugium.
