Aquacultured Chaetomorpha

Chaetomorpha is especially common in saltwater aquariums because it can be used for removal of nutrients, especially nitrates. Aquarists will commonly house this alga, perhaps with others, in a refugium. This algae is typically preferred over other macroalgae such as caulerpa because it is less likely to undergo sexual reproduction in the aquarium. It is also easy to remove because it will not attach to rocks or substrates. In addition to nutrient export, chaetomorpha is known to host beneficial amphipods which can subsequently be used as a food source for corals and animals that may reside within the aquarium.

Our aquacultured chaetomorpha grows year round in our high density grow out tanks. We like to house our peppermint shrimp in our chaetomorpha tanks since it provides an excellent hiding habitat for them.
