Plating Coralline Algae

This coralline algae is growing on my rock and it is so beautiful that I donít want to stick a coral on it.
What do you think?

I think last time I saw something similar it was in the buy/sell forum and there was a good bit of interest.

Wow that's really gorgeous. I can see why it would generate so much interest. I mean I would totally buy some.

Wow….just wow! So seriously, where can you buy plating coralline like that? I have never seen it online for sale or at a LFS.

It’s tougher to actually get them IMO, Not too many people have them. I was lucky to get my hands on one, trying to grow more of it, plus they break apart very easy if your not careful. I have a purple plating macro algae as well, looks nice.
