Chaeto isn't inclined to go sexual like Caulerpa so I wouldn't worry there. Up your bulb and your photo period and then just be happy!

I think I set my skimmer to be too aggressive. That might be the issue. I add Kent Coral-Vite mineral supplements about 2 or 3 times a week. Fish, inverts and corals are really healthy. I haven't heard cheato go sexual so I actually wouldn't worry about that.

Thanks for the clarification steve.. It's good to know at least one of the macro's dont reproduse sexually... :P
Any others besides chaetomorpha that are safe in this regard?
I feel kinda bad for not knowing this but for some reason I error on the side of caution with macro's.

Gametophyte and sporophyte algae

The more common genus to us that will reproduce sexually...Caulerpa, Udotea, Halimeda, Rhipocephalus, Penicillus, and Bryopsis.

Cheers

I would also say increase your lighting period. As long as the cheato is not shrinking however IMO you are alright. Like the others have said the purpose of it to begin with is to decrease nutrient loads in your system. If it ain't broke don't fix it applies here IMO.
