I am imposing a limit of no more than 10 lbs. of prolifera per order
retail or wholesale. The reason for this limit is to prevent die
off once it is purchased. No one has enough room to house more than
10lbs. of prolifera properly.
We have some prolifera available for a limited time in the 1/4 lb. sizes only.
Prolifera is the best choice for the refugium. Our choice Caulerpa

thick hardy stuff. Recently, we've found it loaded with microfauna: Micro Stars, Bubble Snails, small clams, and some Medusa Worms. This Chaetomorpha comes to you in about a
