Is grape calerpa a good exporter of nitrate/phosphate? I have some and it grows a lot faster than the chaeto.

Had some in back of biocube a few years ago and it was great. Kept levels down and didn't need a lot of light. I have a 55g with 20g fuge now, and having hard time with chaeto. If you have enough can I get some?

Yes, it is an excellent consumer of Nitrates and Phosphates. However, if it gets into your display, and you have no herbivores to eat it, it has the ability to take over your tank.

Sorry I only have a small amt., but started w/ golf-ball size and it has doubled.
