The Halimeda plants are native of the Tropical oceans, and are calcareous green micro-algae. The Halimeda plant features coin like beaded leaf segments end to end, forming a chain, which looks splendid in water. For this reason the Halimeda plants are also known as money plants. Halimeda plants are peaceful plants and are non-invasive due to which they can be housed with other tank inhabitants. The Halimeda plants are very hardy and can be eaten up by few fishes. They are reef safe as it does not harm the corals or disturbs any invertebrates present in the home tank. The Halimeda plants usually reach up to a size of 4 inches and can be housed in a tank of not less 20 gallons. It is best to keep the Halimeda plant at a temperature of range of 70-83 F. We recommend you to provide the Halimeda plant good lighting such as 2 watts per gallon or more, with 5500-7500 Kelvin bulbs, as it prepares its food by photosynthesis. For better growth additional supplements such as good quality aquarium fertilizers and carbon dioxide can be provided to the Halimeda plant. Along with the former, the Halimeda plants also require sufficient level of calcium in the tank as they deposit calcium carbonate in their tissues. The Halimeda plants cannot tolerate extensive pruning and excess amount of nitrate and phosphate, as they may wilt and die. It is easy to care and maintain, thus the Halimeda plant is perfect for a beginner aquarist.
