    no one knows where to get caulerpa? would any 1 want to sell me some cut off cheap? i did find a few online retailers but there flat shipping rate is more than the cost of the plant.

    Do you have a local reef club or the like? We usually give it away here...

    12-14 hours of good light exposure will give you a lot of growth in short order!!! Be sure to trim it back from time to time ...
