Algae found in reef aquariums
http://southeastqueenslandm.aforumfree.com/t2364-algae-commonly-found-in-marine-reef-aquariums?highlight=Algae+commonly

Not all algae have had their latin names found yet or been worked much,give it time or place on the forums if you know any algaes names that have not had a name put to them yet.

When collecting caulerpa and any forms of algae from the wild, be sure to soak the collected algae in ordinary tap water or RO filtered water for at least †ten minutes to an hour allowing all hitch hiker pests to be killed off and not get into your aquarium.

All caulerpa forms used for importing will grow at their best in waters no deeper than 8 inches in the aquarium or algae area-refuge and as the depth increases they will become more spars in coverage and achieve less valuable nutrient importing.

All algae types react well to leds of cool white and standard blue lighting and temps no higher than 25c-26c with regular dosing of small amounts of iodide, liquid iron, and all elements dosed for corals.

green algae
All caulerpa are not reef safe and may become invasive when added to the display aquarium and it will be a huge mistake if you do so.

Caulerpa nummularia or peltata or umbrella caulerpa.
This one has flattened discs like peltate branch lets.
Invasive algae weak importer, not reef safe
Algae-inlcuding coralines and caulerpa found near Brisbane in SEQ. Pbucket

Racemosa found in SEQ.
Great importer Not reef safe.
The original form of racemosa †laetevirens.
Amazing nutrient importer and supplier of several trace elements though algae munchers will wipe it out quickly.
Algae-inlcuding coralines and caulerpa found near Brisbane in SEQ. Pbucket

The local variant of racemosa laetevirens.
Great importer Not reef safe.
This morph of the laetevirens is found here near Brisbane, the laetevirens is the most morphic of all caulerpa.
Amazing nutrient importer and supplier of several trace elements though algae munchers will wipe it out quickly. This one dies quickly, "goes sexual" from 25c and up.
Algae-inlcuding coralines and caulerpa found near Brisbane in SEQ. Pbucket

A racemosa form common on the sunshine coast.
Average nutrient importer Not reef safe..
Algae-inlcuding coralines and caulerpa found near Brisbane in SEQ. Pbucket

Caulerpa lentillifera-sea grape,common on reefs near straddie,also found world wide.
Very common here in the southeast on outer reefs in high nutrient and low light areas.
Average nutrient importer Not reef safe..
Algae-inlcuding coralines and caulerpa found near Brisbane in SEQ. Pbucket
Up close.
Algae-inlcuding coralines and caulerpa found near Brisbane in SEQ. Pbucket

Caulerpa Taxifolia (surge zone variation).
This one can be extremely invasive taking over the shallow areas of the aquarium and will grow over corals.
Use only in separate algae areas that will not allow spores into the aquarium.
This caulerpa has an attack form of chemical called caulerpenyne in greater amounts then any other form of caulerpa that it will use to fight of other algae and marine fish and inverts and may adversely affect corals further on.
Invasive toxic algae weak importer not reef safe
Algae-inlcuding coralines and caulerpa found near Brisbane in SEQ. Pbucket

Taxifolia (still waters variety).
This one has caulerpenyne in greater amounts then any other form of caulerpa as well, not good for any purpose.
Useless and not reef safe
Algae-inlcuding coralines and caulerpa found near Brisbane in SEQ. Pbucket

Caulerpa brachypus.
Invasive algae weak importer, not reef safe
Algae-inlcuding coralines and caulerpa found near Brisbane in SEQ. Pbucket

In the aquarium.
Algae-inlcuding coralines and caulerpa found near Brisbane in SEQ. Pbucket

Chaetomorpha algae.
Not a common algae here in the southeast, in fact we have only found it once and that was on the sun shine coast.
A reasonable nutrient importer of some nutrients and nitrates and very easy to control.
This alga does not attach and needs to be rolled-turned regularly so all areas can utilise lighting for photosynthesis. Any tiny piece with adequate lighting will begin to make a ball and expand. Other algae will grow on this chaetomorpha, making the turning of it even more essential.
Best way to keep it is to have an acrylic rod through the centre of each ball held in place some way horizontally and turn the algae when ever you get a chance or if set up right the current will turn it for you due to its incapacity to attach.
Great importer of nitrate and slightly of phosphates reef safe
Algae-inlcuding coralines and caulerpa found near Brisbane in SEQ. Pbucket

Caulerpa cupressoides.
Very common in the south east.
Invasive and semi useless for nutrient importing Not reef safe. .

Reef safe
Very common in the south east in shallow high nutrient waters.
Non invasive, will turn more red in most aquariums and is an excellent addition to any reef aquarium.

Halimeda discoidea-neptunes knecklace.
Coralline algae, low flow and general low quality conditions will make it turn white and expel the algae with in. It can grow to sizes that may shade other photosynthetic life.
Semi reef safe
Weak importer, not recommended as reef safe

Purple coraline

Udotea sp family of Udoteaceae or mermaidís fan.
Reef safe
These are several variations of the one form of coralline algae that will grow to suit its area and angle.
If you lay it flat, small fans will begin rise from the plant as it lays flat.
They can attain several bulbs that they use for attaching into the mud and many forms of mutations of shape, attachments and size have been seen.
Deco algae, reef safe
