Can anyone ID this red-burgundy macroalgae? It looks like Halymenia, but the form is somewhat similar to Feather Caulerpa. I'd like to know what kind of light/flow it needs.

I wonder if Haliptilon is Haliptilon outside of the hobby. I looked it up in my tax books, and it looks like a coralline algae. I can see yours is calcified, but it doesn't look like a coralline algae...or any of the species of Haliptilon in this book.... Oh well, so is the world of phycology. A bunch of scientists that care about cell structure rather than what it looks like in a fish tank... :)
