    Hi, hope someone can assist. I was given chaeto a few months ago and noticed that it did not really grow much. Can someone please tell me what type of lighting is best for these? (and also, if possible, where will I be able to find/buy it).

    Mine stays under a normal 100W spot, 8-10 hours on reverse cycle with the DT, does well

    Mines grows wild under sunlight.
