Thinning Chaeto


Recommended Posts

thin it real good, and rinse it out good in your water change water, before you throw it away.


I find that it catches a lot of crud also, if I "wash it out" I get nasty brown water...should I just dump it back in?

Here's what I do: put about a gallon of tank water into a container. Prune off a section of macro and put it into the conainer. Then prune what you want out a little at a time and rinse/shake it off in the container and dispose. Most of the pods or worms, etc will collect or move into the macro you have in the container. When you are done you can simply move the peice of macro back into the fuge. I have found it greatly reduces the losses.
