Red and blue hypnea algae variations.

These two algae species growing into each other nicely in my tank seem to be becoming as common as each other these days!
The blue pannosa has been around in SEQ waters for ages, but the red has always been more rare, that is until recent climate change water temps made it quite common where algae grazers are more rare.
With matting algae species like this, you will find your amphipod numbers will blow out.

Before placing them together.
Red, still in the ocean.

Blue, it doesn’t look so blue in the ocean, it looks more a washed out green/blue.
This pic is once in tank.

Both together in the aquarium.
