    Not sure if its a problem or just something with the set up.   But I have had cheato in my fug for about two weeks, and not expecting great growth, but I don't seem to be getting any.  Anyone have any idea why?[​IMG]

    It needs nitrates to grow, so if you have low nitrates or ) nitrates, you will see very little growth.

    When I started my fuge I had half chaeto half Caulerpa. The caulerpa grew wayyy faster and now I only have a tiny amount of chaeto in the corner. I think it just doesn't export nutrients as well.
