    Heyy, I just had a question.. My chaeto is losing some of the deep green color, its a lighter green than it was.. My nitrates and phosphates are 0 and I use Phosguard... Could there not be enough nutrients in the water for it to thrive? My tank is super clean and the nitrates and phosphates...

    Hey guys! I wanna know your opinion.. should chaetomorpha be rolling or not rolling? In my opinion I wasn't getting enough flow through the algae and it started to lose some of the strong green color it usually has. As soon as I balled it up and got it rolling, within 2 days, the deep green...

    Hey guys! So my new sump build is a killer success and I am stoked. I now have a 100gal DT and a 55gal sump with Chaeto. I wanted to ask you guys if any of you have noticed this.

    Well, it's done. And I'm blaming Geoff for it, alright maybe blame isn't the right word. I think I should be thanking him. I just finished removing the macro algae from my sump. That stuff is nasty. I was going to keep it in there and if it died, then it died. But the last straw was when I saw...

    Hello guys, anybody know where I can get some chaeto algae here in Michigan? I have checked all the fish stores around here in Westland and cannot find any store that sells it. They have other kinds but not chaeto algae. Thanks for the help.
