beautiful, hardy, species that does very well in marine aquariums.
Rhizoid-bearing rhizomes give rise to small flat topped umbrella
shaped uprights. A distinctive variety usually found in low-light
habitats under reef ledges and deep water habitats. We collect two
varieties, one with rounded caps, the other with flat caps. It will grow in tall strands if given
strong bright light and will remain more compact if exposed to a
high current and partially shaded habitat.
