    How much flow do you have in your fuge? I've never been very successful with Chaeto growth in any of my tanks and I think it may be due to lack of flow. It basically sustains itself and that's about it.

    This is the light I have: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    My mangroves and hair algae grow great in my sump. Sadly my sump doesn't have a specific refugium area, so I use something like THIS and honestly there's nearly no flow through it currently. I was thinking of moving it closer to the drain to the next chamber so that I'd get a tad bit more flow, or even moving it into the final chamber as that has more flow.

    Other than that for me, I have a large clean up crew and do lots of water changes currently. Occasionally if I notice algae coming strong I'll throw in a phosphate filter pad and then remove it within 48 hours. I've heard they get clogged very quickly and just want to get them out.

    I got the eshoops R200 sump. And the flow is kinda strong going through there. The chaeto tends to float up a bit so everyday I do tumble it a bit to get the air bubble out for it to sink back down. And I think because my culture phytoplankton are grown by the miracle grow plant food. That refresh the trace elements algae need to grow. I did one time reads that red algae needs iron to grow well.

    And my refugium did totally die off once when I was using Vibrant to kill bubble algae at 5th month period of the tank. That time I got to ultra low nutrient that every algae die and my acan anemone were bleaching.


    What I did to fix it was adding more fish and feeding more and dose kno3 (stump remover) and than I brought their color back up and refugium thriving now.

    The key to cheato is slightly higher nutrients to support it and iron to super charge it. Plus you need strong lighting if you want it to really take off.
