I'k getting ready to setup a refugium. I can't seem to find and chaeto, most places are out of stock.

Any suggestion on where to find some?

Thanks
Richard

Why don't you list your location? If you live anywhere near a forum member they would just give it away for free (at least I would do that since it is cheap and grows fast).

+1

Most LFS around here don't sell it, but I do have a club in my area and everybody seems to have it for some reason.

there's some on Live Aquarius's Divers Den for 20$ if you can snipe it in time

you can soak/rinse in fresh water to rid hitchhikers--cheato is very hardy.

these 2 are out of stock but good sources:

locals usually give it away, but you still want to rinse it:

I've always had trouble buying chaeto from eBay but recently gave this seller a try and was pleasantly surprised. The chunks he sent were really large (and healthy). Very happy
