    Ah, ok. looks awesome. You'll be happy with the fuge. It will do a lot more for you than keeping a good pod population.

    Does great things for keeping algae under control by consuming the phosphates and nitrates out of the system. Makes your chemistry easier.

    fwiw, I have grown chaeto for years in my 20g devoted fuge... And now in my nano-fuge... never had it tumbling, and 24/7 lighting. Stuff grows like mad. Gracillaria, for instance, has been known to "need" a tumble... but I've never grown the stuff.
    I have also been partial to DSB's in my refugiums... and after they mature, have never needed to do any maintenance (or cleaning) beyond pulling macroalgae out periodically.

    Just my experience and $0.02....

    I tried cheato once and it disappeared. I was told it was due to lack of flow. That it needed to tumble? So I tried the grapes and that grew for a while, then that just disappeared? Now I only have this bush of, I don't remember what it's called, Halmilda or something. Looks like a catuswithout thorns.
