Description
Caulerpa sp. macroalgae is great for use in refugiums. Given light and nutrients it will grow and soak up phosphates and nitrogen based compounds which will lower nitrates. It grows much faster than Chaetomorpha. Caulerpa has been shown to add to the chemical toxins emitted in the reef aquarium by its inhabitants in an effort to conform the environment to its liking. Also, there is a risk of it going sexual and releasing its spores which can result in problems unless managed properly. We have found that when lit 24/7 Caulerpa is less likely to release spores. We have never noticed negative affect related to its toxins either. Carbon use will minimize any potential problems created through Caulerpa use.
