Creates excellent biogenic microhabitat for copepods and amphipods.

This hardy green algae is commonly used in refugia and algae scrubbers, where large masses of the plant can be kept with minimal packing. It grows in long, curvy, rigid strands that create a framework with ample inner space that provides shelter for a diversity of small, beneficial benthic creatures such as pods.

    I made the mistake of buying chaeto from another company before ordering this. The first company sent chaeto filled with hair algae and bubble algae. After a quick inspection I knew there was no chance of that going in my tank I ordered AlgaeBarns Chaeto. This is a much better product that what I received from the other company. What I received is also extremely dense and not stringy like the other stuff I got. I am really impressed with the quality, density and cleanliness There didnt appear to be anything caught in the algae and as described it is clean.
