Another couple of sessions trying to take seaweed photo’s. A couple of seaweed species are really thriving at the moment, one is False eyelash weed Calliblepharis jubata in the middle of the picture above. In the picture below a couple of other species, Irish moss Chondrus crispus in the foreground, Discoid forkweed Polyides rotundus on the left, Black scourweed Ahnfeltia plicata on the right, with some Red grape weed Gastroclonium ovatum at the top. Below that two ‘miscellanious’ pictures and after that some photos of individual species: the photo that turned out best was of Bonnemaison’s hook weed Bonnemaisonia hamifera, an invasive species from the Pacific. After that Juicy whorl weed Chylocladia verticilliata, a Plocamium species and my favourite, the Bushy rainbow wrack Cystoseira tamariscifolia.
Just Beautiful. The first picture is a masterpiece!! It would be a dream to have an aquarium looking just like that wouldnt it?
Thanks Marius. I like how the composition turned out in the first picture, but unfortunately the water was not superclear. Have you ever seen a temperate tank covered in Corralina? Indeed would be great to beable to grow these (especially as occur year-round), cheers Mick
No not like that. had a good bit of it but nothing like this lush cover
