How to get Chaeto to tumble


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I got a batch of Chaeto from a kind reefer a few weeks back.  I am using a tunze refugium light.

The light just manages to light the surface of the chaeto.  Then I repositioned the light to shine from the bottom.  Still the same issue of the amount of light reaching the chaeto further away from the light.  I noticed that some youtube videos show the chaeto tumbling and spinning.  They say that the tumbling effect is from the flow of the water but given the constraints I have, I was wondering if I can create the same effect with a spray bar or use a bubble curtain?  Anyone has tried these and how did you achieve it?  Using air or water?

Thank you.

Sorry All for the late reply.  Work took over.

Hi Luenny, what kind of pump are you using? If I am not wrong you are using a red sea 200 xl right?    I have the same sump so would like to see how you did your fuge and how to tumble.

Hi Kenji, I have limited space so can't have an algae reactor. :(

Hi Alvin, I got from FnM.  They are having a mid year sale but too bad no stock. https://www.freshnmarine.com/products/tunze-led-eco-chic-refugium?_pos=108&_sid=21cda44ef&_ss=r
