Is there any specific way to acclimate macros? In the past I've always just tossed them in there and had them grow well.

I have done the same, and nothing died yet :)

Yea I have not heard of any acclimating being needed either. However there can be a lot of micro pods and things attached that you might want to keep, in which case acclimating would help.

I really enjoyed reading through this thread. I wanted to ask about my Graciliara that i recently added to my aquarium. After reading i wanted to become a full fledge Macro enthusiast.

I added this beauty two weeks ago and since then its pretty much self propagated. I have pieces all over the aquarium. Is that good? Or could it be slowly dying?

Is it being picked apart by anything?

You do know that the urchin you have there in that picture can and probably will start eating any macros you place in your tank right?

I'm aware, I usually supplement with nori, but she gets curious when something new in the tank. She picked at a few of the outer branches and then left.

As Speaker said, i do have a sea urchin in there she eats off the outermost branches. It's propagating though deep on the large branches.
