Just let them be. You can't do anything about them in a community tank. You can try and collect them and rear them in a separate tank, but that takes some doing....and to what end?

How do you grow your Chaeto?

I have Chaeto and it grows really good but it isn't that dark green color I have seen at the stores.

Is it because I'm not trimming some off enough?

Looks fine to me. I'd trim it back though.

Im nott in the glass versus acrylic war but i can give my observations.

1. Acrylic does scratch easier than glass - keep your scrubber clean and keep your rock away from the sides.
2. Arcylic is clearer than glass but creates a magnification effect that can be confusing to your eyes
3. Its a lot easier to cut new holes into if needed

1. Glass can be thinner thus lighter than acrylic
2. Glass ismeasiermtomclean and harder to scratch

I've had both and I like both and hvae no preference


To me it is all above size times price

Actually, acrylic tanks are much lighter than similar size glass tanks.

Very true, especially as they get larger. it took four of us to lift my 240g glass and I bet an acrylic tank the same size could be lifted by one person.

I doubt one. Two probably. Something that large can't be balanced by one man. I'd bet the weight would be an issue for one if it was more compact.

Ok...So maybe two. but two aren't gonna move a 240g, 1/2" thick glass tank unless they are big weightlifters.
