    The only stupid question is the one not asked;)
    Chaeto is a macro algae. We grow them in our sumps to help with nutrient export. Ask any reefer who uses them for some. Im sure the guys on here will give you some for free.

    Chaetomorpha is an algae type closely related to blue green algae-cyano bacteria. More so then other algae that all have smaller concentrations of cyano with in as well.
    The heavy concentration of encapsulated photosynthetic bacteria as a bacterium, enables it to pull nitrate out of your water and separate the atoms a great deal and not be a problem.
    It’s not as efficient as caulerpa types that have bulbus forms at phosphate reduction.
    It’s also a good home for amphipods.
