Chaetomorpha Chaeto Fine Marine Macro Algae

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.

Light
Chaetomorpha / Chaeto macro algae love the light, as more as you provide as faster it will grow.

Palatable

This Chaetomorpha algae species is for larger algae eating marine fishes palatable.

Attaching
It is not invasive and will not attach itself. A great choice for the refugium for nutrients export.

Trimming
Whitish parts of it should be removed as they are decomposing.

Treatment
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.

    How much NO3 does Chaeto need to grow, as mine is around 0-3 now, and my chaeto stopped growing and is gone brittle? Answer:
    The main nutrient Chaeto will use to grow is NO3. Algae love nitrates and phosphates, which is why we guess you got the Chaetomorpha marine algae in the beginning :),When your nitrate level is very low, it will slow down or even stop the growth of your algae, as there are not enough nutrients for it available. This is often not a problem with Chaeto, as it is a very hardy marine algae species, and it doesn't die of easily like other macro algae species in those nutrients low environments.It is btw possible to have your marine water "to clean", which means that corals and algae won't really thrive. In this case, it might be advisable to increase feeding for a time or to add some extra nitrate to your water.

    Hello Just a quick question: What is the difference between chaetomorpha chaeto fine and chaetomorpha chaeto linum ? Kind regards Ainar Answer:
    Hi. The fine Chaeto grows much finer and faster than the conventional Chaeto / Chaetomorpha macro algae you often find, and as our other Chaeto species.The fine Chaeto is as well a great natural food source for herbivore marine fishes, like Tang Fishes and co, which like to eat this algae species often.Hope this helps.Kind regards

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.

Shop owner reply (Mar 26, 2018):
Thank you for your feedback.

This Chaetomorpha macro algae species is actually a perfect alga for the sump, to remove nutrients, as it grows much faster than the coarse Chaeto species.

Plus it has the bonus that you can feed this chaeto it to herbivore fishes. So especially for your fish, who eat the Red Grape algae, it should be a very welcome algae meal, to keep him happy.

What we recommend is to place it in the middle of a three-sector sump, so it can't get sucked up from the return pump or a skimmer, best with a small filter, so it can't get in the return chamber.

I am sure you will be impressed by the growth of it :)

If you have any further questions don't hesitate to contact us.

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.
