The Pom Pom Gracilaria hayi, also known as the Red Bush Macroalgae, is an exceptionally beautiful, flame shaped macroalgae. Between bright red and burgundy in hue, its fronds taper towards their ends giving its flame-like appearance, adding a splash of color and texture to any refugium or saltwater aquarium.
Perfect for surgeonfish and other herbivorous species, this macroalgae grows quickly in a refugium so you can harvest the growth for supplemental feeding.
- Free of Parasites
All of Algae Barn`s macroalgaes are kept in their own closed system. They are cleaned, treated, quarantined, and inspected before they are sent to you. This ensures that no unwanted pests & parasites make it into your tank.
- Add Color & Texture
Pom Pom`s bright red & burgundy hue with its flame-like fronds make for a beautiful addition to any display tank or refugium in need of a splash of color.
- Removes Excess Nutrients
This species of macroalgae grows quickly and cleans your tank by consuming excess Nitrates & Phosphates for easy nutrient export. Balance your nutrient levels and watch your in-tank ecosystem thrive!

We think the best way to inspire people to protect our oceans is to help them observe, understand and learn from the magnificent creatures that inhabit them. That’s why at Algaebarn we produce premium aquacultured marine organisms that are sustainable and eco-friendly. By providing quality live foods backed by scientific research, we aspire to improve the general health and longevity of ornamental fish. One day we hope to see all marine aquariums filled entirely with aquacultured organisms, thus reducing our hobby’s impact on natural marine environments. The best way to make that vision a reality is to start with the building blocks of all marine ecosystems; Zooplankton and Phytoplankton. We grow all of our premium Copepods and Phytoplankton at the base of the Rocky Mountains in our state of the art 2,000sqft aquaculture facility. As hobbyists ourselves we understand the importance of knowing what goes into your aquarium. That’s why we run all of our water through a twelve stage RODI system before mixing in InstantOcean synthetic sea salt. There are no fish or copper parts anywhere in our facility so you never have to worry about introducing anything unwanted into your aquarium. We only sell premium live Copepods & nutritious Phytoplankton with no harmful chemicals or preservatives.
