    Hi all,

    I'm adding a sump to my Boyu over the weekend, so I'm looking for someone who would donate / sell me some chaeto algae.

    I have noticed it's a bit scarce at the moment, hope you all aren't letting it die :m79: :lol:

    @jsoli4 - I'm actually adding a sump to the system, so the chaeto won't be in the rear compartments, it'll go into the sump. Will then add a normal energy saver light onto it, and let it shine on a timer in reverse of the dt lights (so it will shine at night).

    The cost to convert to a small sump isn't all that bad, and it's way worth it in the long run. I got a smallish tank for free, and a buddy is building me the stand. All I had to buy was the plumbing, return pump and paint for the stand...
