My reef club held its 1st frag swap this past weekend. Since I had already bought a lot at LEAR, I did not buy anything but another club member had seen that I was asking to buy hypnea pannosa on the club forum, so he brought some to the swap and gave it to me, along with a sprig of dragon's breath. I am very excited about both of those macro algaes.

I really hope it takes in the high nutrient tank. It seems to be taking put in the spot I chose for it so that's a good start.

Yes, they seem to do better when placed and left alone. I had to break my habit of moving plants around until I was happy with their placement. I think it takes them awhile to adjust to new lighting, etc.

I have a few frags of old hypnea that are slowly coming back. The red I have planted behind the barnacles might be dragon's breath. So we may have a couple of plants in common!

I too have trouble placing macros and corals and then leave them be. Its so easy to want to tweak the placement to make it a little bit better, ha ha!

Yes, we actually have quite a few of the same macros as I have codium and red grape too. They are both very nice macro algaes. I wished I could get ulva to not get blown away and to grow in my tank, but every time I try it, it is swept away and disappears. I would like to get some blue scroll again some time as well.

Hi Dawn, how are things going with your tanks? Haven't heard from you in a while...
