Thank you for that.. Mellow

For those who don't know, ochtodes are a form of algae.

Whatever, idk, it's all Macro to me! I used to by some red alga for my puffers. They liked it, and the pods on it.

Macro deserves our attention, mr. Happy

You probably bought gracilaria. Most everything seems to love chowing down on that stuff!

Haha, thanks, but... not really. There's not that much to know, to be honest.

All I did was read every thread on NR about macro, and skim through that link I posted. Smile

What does the 'L' stand for?

All I'm getting is Nigerian people when I search L. Forsani. Mellow

L stands for Lactoria and I meant fornasini. It's the thornback cowfish Smile.

In the wild ocean. In captivity an average of 6 inches for reasons similar to the growth of T. gibbosus I would assume.
