    I can rather give you some Cheato. I'm in Pretoria east.


    Cheato do not go sexual on you. But it is slower growing. Does not have roots like Caulerpa that gets a holdfast forever into your rocks. Your choice.

    Cool. When will be convenient to collect? I'm also in Pretoria East. Reason why I wanted fern caulerpa is coz it's more aggressive in the uptake of nutrients.

    Caulerpa only really goes sexual when it's doesn't get enough nutrients AND light and I don't mind getting and extra few pieces of LR for it to get a holdfast on. ;)

    @Chikaboo, yeah I saw Ziyaad had some caulerpa but wasn't really the type i was looking for. But thanks for the heads-up.

    Seems I have no luck with the Fern Caulerpa. I need something that grows faster than cheato, and I know the fern caulerpa are very fast growers. Any other Macro that is also fast growing that is available?

    Tnx!

    I work most of the week in Sandton. So if you can collect from here, or Centurion.

    I got Cheato Donovin

    And NSteyn, I got Caulerpa, but not the fern type. Nor the small bubble cluster (like a bunch of grapes). Looks like a combo of the two. Using the caulerpa on my experiment tank. But WOW, this stuff does grow like mad.

    Cheato I got.
