This Red Grape Kelp is very similar in appearance to the more common plant, Caulerpa. Although they are similar, this species is not at all related, and is a beautiful red coloration. This plant develops many branches that carry numerous small grape-like leaves. It will grow relatively fast under the right conditions, and is a favourite food for herbivores.

The proper environment for Grape Kelp is an aquarium with plenty of live rock, and has moderate to high illumination. Herbivorous fish love to eat this, as this is one of their favourite meals. This is a wonderful plant for nutrient exportation and a great hitching post for seahorses. It also makes a great supplementary food for herbivorous fish, and can be added to the main aquarium when trimmed. It will not tolerate inferior water conditions.

Seahorses also love this plant due to it being the perfect hitching post, also being surrounded by bright colours encourages seahorses to match these bright colours in their environment!

We post this item Monday to Thursday (to avoid them being left in a sorting office over the weekend) and any ordered recieved before 8am will be posted that same postage day first class.

We send these first class to ensure they are not out of water for long.
