I had a handful of chaeto in my sump, a few weeks ago I had to remove my sallylightfoot crab from my main tank because he started attacking fish. He's been cleaning up the sump.....to extreme standards. Over night he's eaten the whole clump of chaeto! He hasn't really been touching it but got up...
