Everything seems happy with the 96W lights, and it does have a nice set of timers, so maybe that would be best? Would 160W really benefit more than the problems created from it feeding algae?

Okay, so today my Chaeto arrived. It came early! I havent got my refugium set up yet. What should I do with the stuff? Its quite alot! I took out some of the pieces that had browned. I took a good bit of it and stuck it into a polyester sock that petsmart was selling for filter media. Its now floating in the DT, but it doesnt look like it will allow much light in through the tiny holes. How long can this stuff live without proper light levels?

What if you use the 160W equipment but remove a couple of bulbs. Wait until the tank settles at 96W to take care of the algae....add a bulb...wait to settle...add a bulb.

Might work.

As for chaeto, I leave mine as a big ball in the sump.
