ive been reading a few posts here about algae (the good type)
this stuff looks amazing and im very interested in putting some sort of good algae into my tank due because i have alot of empty rock work, how exactly is this done. what ive read is that you need to seed your tank chop it up and spread in tank and let seed for 30min

can someone fill me in with information where or how to get this algae to grow and about (seeding) Question confused

any type of macro algae. Dragons Breath, Rose Petal Macroalgae, Blue Ochtodes, Fauchea laciniata or any more types that look good in a display tank Smile

The local dragons breath is common in waters from 12 feet to 35 feet deep, anywhere up the sunshine coast where reefs are undulating.
Have you looked in here for ones with latin names.

Cool, that variation is the more common one in the shops as well, plus you find it at the bayside.
This is the variation of Halymenia/dragons breath that I keep.
