    Hi,

    I've wanted to get some Macroalgae (Chaeto specifically) for my tank, but can't seem to find it at the pet stores I frequent. I've tried VIP Pets in Northgate and others in the surrounding area, and none have in stock. Do you know where I could buy some Chaeto for my marine tank?

    Thanks.

    Wow, that was quick ;). I'm not sure - I've got about 300-500L of water (display tank and sump combined) - what do you think. It would be much appreciated ;).

    You just need a tennisball size or so i think and it can grow out from there. I take it you have lights in the sump

    cheato is free. you should anyway trim your bush at times, and you need to remove parts and throw it away, or give it away. So how can you charge somebody for something you would have chuck in the bin.

    Only payment that could be involved is a couple of :peroni:, that both of you enjoy while talking more reef stuff.

    Small ball, 100 to 200mm diameter is all you need. If you got lights in your sump.
