Algae ID Pt 2
« on: April 14, 2019, 19:42:57 »
I still have not been able to get a definite ID on this algae. It is red and if you try to pull it out it does not pull off.

I've attached, what I hope, is a better pic.

Is it leafy or stringy?

I'd say its more stringy. I don't see any leaves on it. It's not slimy and if I try to pull it off it doesn't come off.

I've never seen this before.

Thatís the closest Iíve found to an ID. May be time for a sea hare.

The big turbos work very well on it also.
