Chaetomorpha Chaeto Linum Marine Macro Algae

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

Palatable

This Chaeto algae species is not palatable and we would not recommend to add it to your fish tank display. As especially Tang Fishes might try to eat it, but can't digest it.

Attaching
Chaeto algae species are not invasive and they won't attach themselves. A great choice for the refugium for nutrients export.

Trimming
Whitish parts of it should be removed as they are decomposing. But Chaeto is a very stable macro alga, so this should hardly happened.

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.

    Can I use this in my fish tank, as I don't have a sump? Answer:
    Hello Ben. Yes sure you can use Chaeto in your Tank Display. It won't attach itself and is therefore safe to use. Although we would recommend more prettier macro algae to use in the Tank Display. Especially like the Blue Ochtodes, it looks much nicer and fishes love to nibble on it. It will attach itself, but it isn't spreading like Caulerpa macroalgae and without possible problems , as we described in the Caulerpa CASE ,Maybe you can use it in your overflow instead, when you have there light too?BTW: When we had it in our private tank our Tang tried to eat it and as he couldn't digest it, he was for a day a bit uncomfortable.

    I bought some of your Chaeto which sunk to the bottom of my refugium. Now most of it is floating with air bubbles on it, I'm wondering if that's what it does when it starts to grow? Answer:
    It could be a sign of having micro bubbles in your system maybe. Simply shake the chaeto to remove the bubbles, and attach it to some piece of rock or similar to keep it down. Maybe you can find as well a way to reduce the micro bubbles in your sump?
