Creates excellent biogenic microhabitat for copepods and amphipods!
This hardy, green algae is commonly used in refugia & algae scrubbers, where large masses 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 copepods.
Clean Chaeto, or similar Macro Algae, such as our Clean Sea Lettuce or Pom Pom Macro, is an essential part of any refugium set up! If you’re looking for everything you need to get a new refugium up and running, check out our Ultimate Refugium Starter Pack!

PLEASE NOTE: We go to great lengths to treat, quarantine and remove any unwanted parasites, hitchhikers, and other organisms from our Macro Algae. However, we do not guarantee that this item is completely and totally free of anything unwanted. This is because sometimes spores, eggs, etc can remain viable but not visible, despite our strict quarantine procedure. As a result, we always recommend that you properly quarantine anything new that you are adding to your tank.
