I have started using chaeto for nutrient removal and is working fairly well. Currently using a DIY chaeto reactor.

My question is what to do with the chaeto? I have tried giving it away locally with no takers. I have traded some with a local pet store, for literally next to nothing in trade in. I have also just thrown it trash.

Understand I hate to just to throw it away and getting nowhere giving it away or trading it away.

Anyone have any suggestions? I am starting to think that just throwing it away is my only options.

Be nice if there was a commercial use for it beside in our tanks lol, possibly help offset the expense we put into our tanks.

I just threw away a bunch but have to harvest it every two weeks so a week from this coming Sunday will have a bunch more. Let me know when may be done and I will keep some for you.

Cellulosic ethanol? let it dry, then put it in your wood burning stove?

I feed some of it to my rabbitfish and tangs, and throw away the rest. Feeding it will reduce nutrient export but my fish get fresh algae daily and I still throw away the most of it.
