I have a lot of C. prolifera growing out in my refugium and so far have no issues with it. I find it more easier/quicker-growing than grape caulerpa, for example. It does compete with my fern caulerpa for space, but I left my refugium without light for 4 full days (pitch darkness) and I only lost a few blades - no major die-off or anything. 

 

This is how my fuge looks like:

 

Hope this helps.
