Mermaids Fan Plant

Our Clean Macroalgae is aquacultured in large vats not connected to any fish system to avoid possible parasite or bacteria contamination. You can place our macroalgae directly in your tank without worry.

It is used as a decorative plant in the marine reef aquarium and also in refugiums. These plants grow out of the substrate and form beautiful Fan Shaped leaves.
