    HELP! (identify this macro)

    I took this pice of live rock out of a small 16 gallon tank and put it in my frag tank. After a few days I noticed that this algae started to grow. I've never seen anything like it. Can anyone here help me identify it?

    At first glance it looks like halimeda, but it's late and my eyes are starting to tell me it's time. So, give that a read and take a look at your tank to see if it's close.

    not halimeda, but that does look very cool, the leafs resemble shaving brush (macro) but other than that, i've not seen that kind attached to rocks before

    Nope, Iv'e got Halimeda growing in part of my main tank, and this is definitely not the same stuff.
