Chaeto algae species are not invasive and they won't attach themselves. A great choice for the refugium for nutrients export.
Whitish parts of it should be removed as they are decomposing. But Chaeto is a very stable macro alga, so this should hardly happened.
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.
