    Seriously, so darkness causes culerpa to reproduce or send out seeds? So 12 on, 12 off is not recommended?

    That is also grape calerpa. Calerpa prolifora is fine. I have it in my display. It behaves well. Haha

    Grape and feather are basically sea h*rp*s. You cannot wash if off. People used to put their rock in an oven and near kill themselves to get rid of it. You basically need to freeze your rock for a couple days to kill the stuff, or leave it dry for a very long time. I forget how long.

    I ordered HIGROW 36W LED Grow Light Bulb Full Spectrum for Indoor Plants Veg and Flower (18LEDs, 5-Bands)
    5-Bands full spectrum include deep red 660nm,
    red 630nm,
    orange 610nm,
    blue 460nm and
    IR 730nm.
    I am excited to see how this works.I don't know if all these spectrums are good for growing macroalgae but it looks good.

    I think it was 440 and 660 that do the most for algae. I could be off. One is red and 1 is boue, iirc. That light should do fine.

    This one just seemed interesting. I've seen 2 lghts (red and blue) and 3 (red, blue and white) lights but not 5. Deep red, red, orange, blue and IR ( whatever IR is). I try it for a couple of weeks and see what it can do.

    That's a nice light. Youth has a uv lights? I wonder if there's any benefit like a uv sterilizer.
