The light opposite cycle help stabilize the ph,just shake the Cheato in a bucket the deads should came off or pull it of by hand.... That's does not guarantee the Cheato to grow.
As mr _X said not everyone can grow Cheato , but in my experience I made a couple of changes and now I able to grow Cheato

I used to pull massive amounts of chaeto out of my refugium and give it away, until I had a power outage. This outage killed most everything in the tank. I restarted and re-cycled, and even years later, can not grow chaeto. I can grow caulerpa just fine though, and use a mixture of it in multiple tanks with no trouble.

As for caulerpa ruining your tank, I've had an occurrence at one point and it didn't kill a single thing, just clouded the tank a little.
+2 I read the same thing. I have chaeto in my fuge it grows very slow in my tank. I use led about 10hrs a day for it and it also keeps my copods and amphipody happy. I also have a small peace of l/r with it.
