    oh NO!!! Its a floater. :lol: if it floats i think its better actually as it does not trap detritus undeneath it and it can tumble more freely.

    what kind of overflow is it? Rather use filter wool but you will have to replace it every few days

    Doesnt matter if chaeto floats or not. it will still take up nutrients..

    You can add a Durso pipe to the overflow. just google Durso Pipe. see if it will help you situation
