I've got Chaeto.. Quick question

Hello all, I've purchased some Chaeto from ebay and it has been in my sump for 3 days now, but my nitrates have not gone down at all. I have a flouro light on 24/7 in the sump(10gal). Should i be worried or is the chaeto just stressed from the shipping.

Just give it time. Nothing is fast in fishkeeping.
After a while it'll fill your sump.

Ok.. Thanks Malkore

I picked the wrong hobby considering I'm a very impatient(sp?) person. LOL

Thanks again!
