    Depends on what type of Caulerpa. Do not trust the bubble types. They do go sexual and crash. The feather is better and grows rather quick. But can take over your system as the roots do grow into the rock, making them difficult to remove.

    Cheato grows slower than Caulerpa. Plus it does not have the negative issues that Caulerpa has. Will not take over, no roots and no sudden crashes.

    Rather go Cheato

    Dillan, may I also hijack the thread and ask if any feather Caulerpa is doing the rounds I would be more than willing to collect. Small amount is all that is needed because of the nice growth - I am in Roodepoort but have no objection to driving or arranging a courier
