Chaeto - The Hardiest Beneficial Algae

Chaeto200Chaeto is a type of beneficial algae grown in aquarium sumps to remove excess nutrients and pollution. It appears to be the hardiest type of good algae. We are always amazed how it will survive a variety of conditions and light levels.

Using Chaeto in Mud Filters

We use chaeto algae in our mud filters and it grows quite rapidly when we feed the systems heavily.

Chaeto is a one the best types of macro allergies as far as using it to filter your system. It resembles a green Brillo pad and is phenomenally hardy

Our lights were off for several weeks in one sump, aand when the lights come back on the Chaeto was still there and green so he can adapt to a very wide variety of conditions. It can grow very rapidly, sometimes if you have a heavy nutrient load, which is a good thing, because remember you're exporting those nutrients are exporting those nutrients in one way or another. In this case you're doing it in using a manageable algae as opposed to one this not manageable such as a hair algae. Often at your local reef club, someone has some to give away. You can order it from many supply houses including our coral farm.

It will also serve as a house for all sorts of critters such as copepods and feather dusters. Often if you buy it from a farm, it will already have many of these inhabitants in there. All of these together will help to balance your system in a positive way.

So we highly recommend buying a bad of Chaeto and using it in your sump or mud filter.
You should get tremendous growth in the Chaeto and not in the hair algae !
