chaeto questions

Will chaeto absorb nitrates and phosphates too? Is PC lighting okay in the fuge? (I've heard 6500K is best but mine is one actinic bulb and one 10000K bulb)

Is chaeto supposed to float or sink? I just threw mine in and it sank. Any other advice would be appreciated!

All is good in your world. Just make sure to keep it trimmed.

You can always get 6500K PC bulbs.... but lighting in general isn't a big issue for chaeto -- just so long as it gets some.
