Often placed in the sump/refugium it is a non-invasive and fast growing alga, which is very easy to care for.

This is a different Chaeto species to the ones you'll often find, as it is finer in the structure ( see comparison pictures ) and herbivore fishes will happily eat this one.
Chaetomorpha / Chaeto
This Chaetomorpha algae species is for larger algae eating marine fishes palatable.
It is not invasive and will not attach itself. A great choice for the refugium for nutrients export.
Whitish parts of it should be removed as they are decomposing.
Like for most marine macro algae a higher level of Nitrate and Phosphate, in addition to the supplement of Iron, Magnesium and Trace elements will improve the growth of this algae.

I have to confess to not knowing much about 'good' algae - historically it's something I've been battling to remove not to add to my tank. But the package arrived quickly and although I couldn't put it into my tank for a few days the algae remained moist and healthy looking. Now it's in the sump it seems to be growing happily and nothing unpleasant has crawled out of it!
Arrived fast, good quantity and very good condition. Much finer than I imagined, for the refugium I should have ordered the courser one. I'm new to keeping algae on purpose.
I received my package 4 days ago, and it has now tripled in size. Got a nice healthy size of Cheato. I'll be ordering other types soon.
Received the algae packaged extremely well and the product was in beautiful condition.
Excellent, good size algae portion. would recommend to family and friends.
