    Hi guys,

    How should one position the chaeto in one's DSB?
    Elevated above the substrate using eggcrate for e.g. or is it o.k. to leave it on
    the surface.(Not to sure about this because I think it could become a detritus trap)

    Could you also give me any other advice which would promote both chaeto growth
    as well as animal growth which the chaeto supports?

    Cheers,
    Costa.
