Prolifera or mexicanna are good choices and easily controllable.
Racemorsa is ok and usaully most common.Just look out for the super small tight bunched grapes they can be tough to eliminate(invasive).
H202 does kill it if you are brave(took me almost 2 months ).

Try caulipa prolifera. It's pretty and low light required.

MacroAlgae in display of mantis shrimp tank

I want to cover my peacock mantis shrimp tank in macro algae because I can't really do much else. I know I run the risk of Drago moving it. Any other risks I run putting different types of macro algae in the tank. Also any macro algae type suggestions?
