Chaetomorpha Algae
(Chaetomorpha sp.)

This tried and tested macro algae has been used successfully in the reefing hobby, in refugiums, for nutrient export. It grows very fast and exports both phosphates and nitrates as it grows. The Phosphate and nitrate are not truly exported from the aquarium until the chaeto is harvested and removed. Chaeto does require medium to strong flow and does best when it tumbles within your refugium. It will grow well under medium lightning. We grow ours here at fragbox under the kessil H160 fuge light (which is awesome). Our most popular refugium light is the Innovative Marine 9w. It is an incredible, small, powerful fuge light that is designed specifically for growing macro algaes like this one.
