Chaetomorpha, aka Chaeto Spaghetti Algae, Green Hair Algae

Chaeto Algae

Chaeto (Chaetomorpha) is a bright green macroalgae.  It resembles a pile of used fishing line or green spaghetti.  Chaeto alage is great for filtering nitrates and phosphates when placed in a refugium or can also be used for aquascaping.  Chaeto macroalgae also provides food for your fish and corals. It is very hardy and grows rapidly.  Bright lighting and a good flow will help it grow best.  

Chaetomorpha, it's scientific name, is more popular than some of the other macroalgae varieties, because it does not go thru sexual reproduction which can cause problems in your tank. Also it is not the type of algae that will attach to rocks or corals and therefore is much easier to remove. And the amphipods that are produced by Chaeto are an excellent food source for fish and corals.

In this order you will receive a big handful which should be enough to start with because it grows so quickly. It's a very generous portion - you won't be disappointed!

    I have ordered Chaeto from other suppliers and was impressed with MySaltWaterFishStore as their product was bigger and less expensive than the others. Shipping was fast and well packaged. Looking forward to reduced nutrients in my reef tank!

    I absolutely love this product, I purchased this for my dwarf seahorse tank and they absolutely love it as well. There is so many beneficial little critters that came on like snails, cucumbers, and little starfish. I highly recommend this product and will definitely be purchasing it again.

    Nice portion, lots of pods and a little feather duster in it. I put it in a fish bowl just to check it out. Really cool. I'm going to divide it up in my tanks so pods can hang out in it so the horses dont eat them all at once. Thank you much.

    Very nice Chaeto. Very generous amount. Very clean which was important to me as I planned to use in a Pax Bellum algea reactor.
