    Jip! I agree Michael! Cool man! I was not aware that Frans already got some from you!

    So - you say that your chaeto is now growing like crazy? How was the effect on your tank then?

    When I got the little clump of cheato it was less than a hand full & almost 2 months later that compartment the cheato is in was just cheato from top to bottom 30cm deep 20cm wide 35cmlong full full full & it was raising. My nitrates have decreased not sure about the phosphate as I need to get another kit to test but the last I checked was ok BUT THE JUNGLE BATTLE IS STILL AT WAR that's why I had to cook my LR & even though the tank is bare I can't get rid of it. So what I have just done was caught all my fish & siphoned all the substrate & busy scrubbing the tank down which is almost done (just having a smoke break). I have a fresh salt mix on the go only about 110L & some of the old water is running in another 110L container with sump on heavy skim. I'm thinking of adding my old skimmer to the sump then at least it will get double skimed 1 wet & 1 dry then going to start on making the scrubber/dsb & hopefully the jungle stays away. I'm not adding any pump to the dsb as it would be air driven almost like an ugf but no ugf (under gravel filter). I find it strange that my other tank has 0 gha & clean, the sump is purple in the 1st 3 compartments.
    The cheato grows like a bomb but I haven't seen much result as my skimmer was running a bit too dry causing the gha take over.
