Hi guys

I'm looking for any, and all info on said plant/algae.


Specifically I'm looking for info on what it consists of.. filaments? What makes it different from other algaes? What makes it grow?

all the..basic stuff.. I have a ton of info on culture, distribution etc, but hardly anything about what the plant really is?

Anyone have any litterature or knowledge they'd like to share?

It's like most branched green algae, it does well with similar conditions as the plants and loves high CO2.
Amano shrimp don't eat it.
They will clean any diatoms etc off of it.


You can search the web, there's a fair amount on it.
Marimo balls etc.
Tropica also has it in their data base
