    Hi All,

    I want to get some Chaeto for my nano tank, went looking for some at VIP, Jungle Aquatics and Lifestyle Nursery but they either didn't have any or had no clue what I was talking about.

    Anyhoo, if anyone knows where I could buy some could you please point me in the right direction? Also, how much do I need? I have an Aquaria 37l nano.

    Thanks in advance! :thumbup:

    Chaeto, hard to get, difficult to grow, easy to keep. I have some, but it's like gold and don't have enough to give out, :)SORRY GUYS!

    How much you looking for. Might be able to help you out

    And no ones pays for Cheato. Thats why the LPS doesnt stock it. I just got lucky and got some from Bryan at Jungle Aquatics when another client brought him some a few months ago

    Give it a light and nutrients and it grows! energy saver globes around 6400k-8000k work good. I use a 6400k globe

    @Toolboysa, @Tremayn and @butcherman
    You are awesome! Thanks for offering! :thumbup:
    I just need a bit for the refuge at the back of my tank. I'm hoping that with enough TLC it will grow :)
    Toolboysa: You are the closest to me, would you mind if I could get a small piece from you? I don't mind paying as well :)

    All I can say is thanks aswell! :thumbup:

    Toolboy you seem to be the closest as well, so if you can spare it I'd like a teeny tiny piece. Otherwise Tremayn is next in line :p

    Honestly, I wish a LFS builds a HUGE dedicated refugem/tank just grow to chaeto in it. I for one wouldn't mind paying R10-20 for a bag. Its hard enough to come by as it is.

    The fee will just help cover their electricity cost etc.
