    Getting ready for another clean out. Will be the third in almost 3 months time. I'm consistently getting about half of a 5g bucket of excess chaeto (wet) every month for 6 months now.
    If anyone wants a easy way to raise P.H. this is it. My fuge water tests out at 8.8+ and the display runs between 8.4 - 8.6 respectively.

    Not sure if this is a good thing or not. I haven't checked phosphate in a while but I triple tested it and even crossed referenced it with API. So I've decided to turn off my gfo reactor for a little while and see if I even need it anymore. But it's been off for over a week now.

    Love chaeto. I had a huge wad in my display tank that was a safe haven for all the little creatures that usually go into the food chain. It was a definitely a food production source for my tank.
