I just put a large CPR Aquafuge on my 72 bow. What is the best algae to put in?
How about snails?

Chaetomorph is what I put in mine with some live sand/mud. Works great no problems

Thanks supertech3. I put some Kent Biosediment in and plan on adding some live sand and rock rubble tomorrow.

Sounds like you are on the right track, what type of lighting are you going to use?

Since I have limited space I bought the Aquafuge light. It is a 24W, 7100K daylight pc.

That sounds like a winner

Thanks again supertech3. Is there a type of algae I should avoid. I remember reading about some type that could release toxins into your tank :confused:

That would be caulerpa, it releases toxins when you do not run your lights enough that is why I went with the chaeto

caulerpa - OK - I will remember it now. I really appreciate your help!
