Chaetomorpha / Chaeto 

Chaetomorpha or often called Chaeto / Cheato a very common macroalga which is often used in the sump or a refugium to reduce the nitrate and phosphate level in the marine aquarium.

There are more than 20 different species of Chaetomorpha / Chaeto algae species available. We offer you two different species at the moment. Both are proven to be very hardy in the marine tank and to grow very fast.

The first Chaeto macroalgae species we offer features a thick, dark green tangled mass of filaments, which looks like longs strings.
This  Chaeto species isn't palatable. Algae eating marine fishes may try to eat it, but often they can't digest it.

The second Chaeto macroalgae species we offer has thinner strings and grows a bit faster than our other Chaetomorpha. 
This Chaeto species is palatable, and especially algae-eating marine fishes like the Fox Face Fish and Tang species like the Yellow Tang and The Blue Tang will love to eat this. 

All our algae we sell are from our special Algae Tanks setups which are kept without any fishes for a disease free and premium quality. This said, the might come with hitchhikers not limited to Copepods and Rotifers, as those beneficial critters love the protected environment of our planted marine tanks.

We recommend this alga when you like the idea of having algae growing to reduce Nutrients like Phosphate / Nitrate and at the same time to have a natural algae food source growing for your fishes.

Chaeto algae, in general, are very stable macro algae, which doesn't cause any problems like some Caulerpa species, which might go sexual, or the problem with invasive macroalgae which might overgrow a reef tank. 

By removing the excessive growth out of the tank the nutrients it takes out of the water, mainly Nitrate and Phosphate are removed with this effectively.
As these macro algae don't attach itself it is as well very easy tom remove from the aquarium again, or to thin it out.

Chaetomorpha is as well known to host beneficial copepods, amphipods and Rotifers which can be used as a food source for corals and animals within the aquarium.

Chaeto prefers so a more red-light colour spectrum to grow well, opposite to a lot of the marine macroalgae we offer, which prefer a light colour around 6500k.

We recommend to let it tumble around in the refugium, so it gets good light and doesn't collect any detritus.

Like all our other marine macro algae species we sell these algae with free posting within the UK.

What means "Regrowing"?

When a macro algae species sells well we have sometimes to take it out of the sale as it will need time to regrow again.

The time for this will vary, as some macro algae species will grow very slow, whilst other - especially various  Caulerpa marine macro algae species grow quite fast.
