I received a full QT sized ziploc bag of dense, very healthy looking Chaeto. It was moist in the baggy. The pods or whatever else that was in it probably did not survive as it was in transit for 3 days. It fits very nicely in my 12" CPR Aquafuge. Hopefully it will help my cyano problems by absorbing excess nutrients. It will definately provide a nice home for the hundreds of pods currently residing in the fuge. I'm not sure if I will light it for 12 or 24 hours, any recommendations are appreciated.
The Ebay seller was Seaside Treasure's and my first impression was that it was a worthwhile purchase.

I just got my Chaeto from Aquatic Gallery in Milpitas, Ca. $10 for a big ball of it (probably a quart). No pods on it though from what I can see. I have the 13W Jalli light that is recommended with the 12" aquafuge, so if it grows fast you will see posts for free Chaeto in the near future.

Thanks to both of you. I would probably light it for 12 hours, opposite the main lights.

12 hours opposite lighting appears to be the recommended way to go. So no changes needed to my current config. Thanks

If your main lights are on at noon and off at midnight, then the fuge light would be on at midnight and off at noon. It helps stabilize the pH so don't get as big a drop at night as you normally would.
