    Looking for chaetomorpha in Montreal

    ... would like to know if anyone in the Montreal area has some chaeto for us. I'm not really interrested in ordering just that, shipping would not make it really worth it, and none of the LFS seem to carry it here... So if someone is doing some gardening... hehehe think of me

    Thanks in advance!

    Can I ask why youre looking specifically for Chaetomorpha sp.
    Is there a reason? is it better at exporting nutrients in the water then caulerpa is?

    There is always a risk with caulerpa. If it goes sexual, it realese all of what it has accululated in one shot and this generally end up toxic... Often resulting in a whole tank wipe out!

    There is no such risk with Chaetomorpha. Cheato also doesn't need a substrat and it doesn't get permanatly attached to what ever it touches.
