Product Information

The Chaetomorpha or often just called Chaeto macro algae species is a perfect nutrients export marine algae. Often placed in the sump/refugium it is a non-invasive and fast growing algae, which is very easy to care for. It is used mostly in reef refugiums to consume elevated nitrates and phosphates that often cause nuisance algae in the aquarium. In most cases this macro algae can even help against Cyanobacteria that plague most reef tanks.

Light
Chaetomorpha / Chaeto macro algae love the light, as more as you provide as faster it will grow. Recommended 6500k

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.

PLEASE NOTE: Chaeto Algae is hand picked so each packet may vary in size.
