Chaeto Macro Algae - Aqua-cultured
Chaetomorpha Algae, also known as Spaghetti Algae or Green Hair Algae, is an excellent macro algae for refugiums and sumps in marine aquariums. Each cell strand grows end to end, creating a long stiff intertwined clump, resembling a ball of fine string. Chaeto is fast growing and is not palatable to most marine herbivore species.
Chaeto Algae removes both nitrates and phosphates from saltwater. To help increase the amount of nutrients this algae exports, use medium to high lighting, and maintain it in an area of moderate water-flow.
