Plants/Algae

While visiting a reef keeper in Austin, I saw this interesting macro algae, nicknamedRed Dragon's Breath - Halymenia sp. What makes this a nice choice for some tanks is that it adds a splash of red color, and the plant doesn't take root to the substrate nor the rockwork. Some fish may eat it, so if you are getting it for looks, try a small piece in your tank first to see if any of your livestock devour it.
