    Stay away from the caulerpa. Chaeto is fine though. I saw quite a ball at Reef Aquatics.

    Caulerpa can go sexual and make the water a bit murky, but if you keep it trimmed then it behaves itself. I much prefer it to chaeto. If you want some caulepa let me know, im pruning tomo.

    the feather type of caulerpa is better than the grape variety. But cheato is better at the end of the day, although it does grow slower.

    Caulerpin. Alleopathic toxin. Growth rate if rhizomes end up in tank... And when a large qty goes sexual, whatever nutrients they took up..... Followed by bryopsis/derbesia.
