The aquarium has given me celurpa, I think thats what they called it. They said something about it being used to help stop nitrates and that. I dont have this problem in my tank. Does anyone else put this in their tank?
Hi, it's called caulerpa, it does absorb nitrates/phosphates but I believe it grows really fast. I would personally choose chaeto as it's easier to maintain you just need to trim it every now and then to keep it in check and to transfer the nutrients from the tank. Even if you don't have nitrate or phosphate problems this is still a great benefit to the tank as it's also a place where pods can seek refuge.
Hi thanks for the reply. I have river reef 90 tank and i see that most people put it in there seperate filtration tank. What do I do as i dont have this? I dont personally like the look of it in the tank. but have no where else to put it. do you have any suggestions?
The tank only had 2 chambers for the filter system (1 has filter balls then the foam block, chamber 2 has bio-media stone looking things and carbon and a filter pad.) it all came with the tank so we followed the instructions they provided. There is not much room in the back for these plants. thanks
Do you have live rock in your main tank? If yes then you don't need what you have in Chambers 1 & 2 as the live rock will act as your biological filtration. Most ppl run Carbon, Phos Remover and Filter floss along with their live rock.
