    Whats the best Macro algae for a DSB. What lighting do you need, and will anyone have any macro algae to spare next week? for my DSB. Will Macro algae survive cycling or should i only add it after.​

    I am probably about 3 weeks away from pruning or you can try Lanzo I know he was pruning .

    I got my energy saver from P n' P. Just make sure it is the right rating or your Chaeto won't photosynthesize
