Marine planted aquascapes

Adding Caulerpa(there are many species and textures to choose from) and
Halimeda to live rock as a background would make a nice easy to care for
A Caulerpa like C verticillata is very fine and suited for smaller tanks.
The size, color and shape of blades is enormous.

Really nice plants for a mid ground: are Udotea and Penicillus ,
