Caulerpa racemosa

Macro algae is a way to keep nitrates down in a reef tank, and many grow it in a refugium. Although illegal in some states such as California, Caulerpa racemosa has grown well in my refugium, and needs pruning every few weeks. As you can see, it has a distinctive look you can quickly recognize and some refer to it as Grape Caulerpa. I've found that it will not go sexual (and disintegrate) if the light is kept on 24 hours a day over this plant.
