Description
Red Grape Algae is similar in appearance to Green Grape Algae, but they are not at all related. Red Grape Algae will grow quickly under excessive flow and higher lighting than most green algae. It is a favorite food for tangs and other herbivores. Best kept in a refugium, this plant does not tolerate inferior water conditions and prefers water that is lower in nutrients.

This plant may sometimes comes attached to a small piece of rock which can be easily placed in a refugium. Otherwise, placing plant base into sand and weighting down with a rock usually encourages it to take root.
Diet
Though you can use an iron supplement in the absence of nutrient rich water, moderation and care should be taken when using this supplement as iron can also encourage the growth of nuisance hair algae and less desirable macroalgae.
