No problem. I like how they offer the penny macro. You never know what you get! Personally I like chaeto. Easier to maintain IMO. I love mine.

My LFS said chaeto likes high flow to help constantly flush it, any merit to this? I wanted to throw a ball of it in my drain section... To the left, resting on the eggcrate.

I would agree. A ball has enormous surface area, so good flow thru it helps keep it healthy.

Cool thanks Greg. But would the drain be TOO much flow?

I'm almost considering creating a box out of eggcrate to plop it in, and can simply remove from the sump to trim when need be...

That would probably work well for cheato. Just make sure you rotate it so the bottom of the ball gets light too.

Yea that little light you see to the right ... I bent it so its shining square on to that drain section from the side. Now time to order some chaeto it looks like..

I don't think you can give algae too much flow. If it's not tearing it up or clogging the drain, your good to go.

Some recently, poorly executed, and taken photos...

Branching hammer


Trumpet


Branching frogs, green and peach



Elegance


Torch


I don't really like frags per se so I've clumped them together as a potential garden...
