yeah, use Chaeto for the macro algae. for lighting, I just bought the little coralife 2x13w fixture, and used epoxy to attach a couple plastic L brackets (that hold cupboard shelves) to the sides, so it grips the top of teh fuge. It can slide left/right, but not front to back, so it cannot get knocked off teh fuge. That fixture grows chaeto so fast....that I could easily ship a fist sized clump every other week, and never run short.

Former advisor and planted tank geek...life's moved on though.

That sounds like a good idea for the lights, malkore.
Do the fish eat chaeto, or is it just to control excess nutrients?

If I add a hang-on refugium to my tank, should I still keep my canister filter? Thanks.
