LF: red plate coralline algae

Has anyone heard or seen this type of coralline algae in a local tank?

Would love some algae scrapings (or a few "plates") to see if I can get these to grow on my live rock.

Looks amazing as it builds little "cups".

See post #12.

It is EVIL HORRIBLE STUFF... seriously. I have lots of it and wish I didn't. It seems to "know" where zoas are and does its best to grow over them, and it's impossible to scrape off the rocks and eradicate once you realize it's causing more trouble than it's worth.

Guess I'll research a bit more on if this becomes a tank-wide nuisance.

I have some but it seems to die in higher light , it was growing nicely in a sump that only gets minor sunlight in the mornings, then i moved it to the DT and it went dark red and some parts are starting to turn white. however its grows like crazy in a dark sump oddly enough.
