It looks like a grape

But is it??? This was bouncing around the seafloor out by the reef this morning. Anyone know what it is?

A Grape! ....no its a type of Algae called 'Lavender Crust'
Rhodophyta , which just means its a red algae.
really cool
Blue green algae on ambergris just recently caught my attention . I really wasn't giving it much thought when evolutionists said we sprang from Blue Green Algae but Its skeletal remains wash up after a storm and are calcium. Never thought of a plant having a skeleton.

It grows and produces a gas that will let it travel after a while like a hot air balloon.

Elbert
I always heard these referred to as single cell algae. Have I again been mislead? I just love the opalescent ones - they do make lovely photographs.
