My chaeto is being ripped a part and pulled into chamber 3.

Is the Chaeto suppose to flow on top of the water?

 

 

Here is my Biocube 29 Setup

 

1. Removed the bioballs and carbon filter

2. Removed the tab between chambers 1 and 2

3. Removed the tabs between chambers 2 and 3

3. Water level is just under the top of basket.

 

Chamber One

Aquatic Life 115 Protein Skimmer

 

Chamber Two

Media Basket

Top shelf: Filter Floss

Middle shelf : Purigen 100ml

Bottom shelf: Chemi Pure Elite 11.74oz tied to middle shelf

 

Fuge Basket

chaeto

 

Chamber three

Hydor Theo 100 Watt Heater

Maxi Jet 1200 Powerhead Return Pump

 

Is there a way to keep the Chaeto in fuge Basket?

Curious to see the outcome of this topic. I will be setting up my tank in the exact same configuration when the pieces arrive in the mail....

My chaeto began floating also, right before melting away. Whatever made it into the display lived eventually sank and lived - so I think it had more a lot to do with lighting.

I do not know much about chaeto or have ever kept it but it needs nutrients to eat and light to live. How long are you running the light and how old is your tank?

The problem is not a light issue but with to strong of a suction to the Camber three with Media Basket and Fuge Basket with the recommend filter Media Configuration. The Chaeto was just added yesterday. How are others with both Media Basket with Purigen &: Chemi Pure Elite keeping their macro algae in the Fuge Basket?
