    I am getting a little nitrate in my tank and now my cheato is growing. How often do most of you thin out your cheato? Does thinning it out more often reduce the nitrates quicker or does it matter? Thanks.

    Hello all, I have recently upgraded from a 55 to a 125. In the 55 I had a little clear rubbermaid tote probably a little less than 10 gal with a 3" sand Bed and 5 red mangroves with a ball of cheato. It worked well, lots of pods, mangroves are growing nicely. Since upgrading to the 125 I would...

    Should I acclamate it in another container and leave it there for a little to do some water testing to see what happens before I put it in my tank? Or. Should just put it right in there?

    Okay so I was thinking...(yes I know that can be a dangerous thing to do) in the first chamber of my biocube 29g, all that it is used for is a heater, and the optional carbon filter. So...could I put cheato in there with a little sub light? Or is there a reason why this shouldn't be done...
