Growing like crazy! Even though you can't tell with this picture. It's as wide as the fuge and almost as long and a couple inches in thickness.

How far should I let it go before trimming.. do I want like a big solid brick of it in there?

Also is it ok if my sump has algae and a little bit of cyano or should I try to keep it clean down there too

you can leave it for a lot longer. i would not remove anything that is absorbing nutrients from the sump, even cyano.

mr_x do you think it would help the chaeto grow faster and absorb more nutrients if I put an additional 26w 6500k CF in there (that's what's in there now)

Again, the fuge is 10 x 9 x 14, approxmiately 5.5 gallons
