Could someone recommend macroalgea that are seahorse safe but are also not green in nature?

I would like to try and promote them to take on other colors like reds, yellows and oranges.

Botryocladia (red bubble), Halymenia, Octoides (purple/bluish), Sargassum (yellowish), red Gracillaria to name a few.

IME, the reds tend to go pale/brown under bright lighting, and are much slower growing.

Man, that photo of the Octodes was taken under some really blue light...not saying it's a bad thing, but it does make it look a lot bluer.

IME It looks awesome both under my AI SOL and 10k Reeflux. The point source of light really makes it shimmer
