Well, I have had my new cpr aquafuge for about 4 days, and my chaeto macro algae has grown quite a bit, sometimes I see little critters that look alittle like centapedes? They are not bristles, they are like 3mm in lenght, but anyways, can chaeto be a food for my fish? Where could I put the "Leftovers" when I prune it?

Feeding the chaeto to your fish is just gonna make your fish poop more, therefore adding more nutrients to your system. Sell the excess, or trade it for credit. You must know somebody near you that has a refuge, that wants some macros.

Also, since I have a small aquafuge, I wont be able to prune too much, I have a biowheel, with no media in it, can I just put my prune into there for the past few weeks until it builds up and I can trade it off in like ziplock bag sizes? How much does it usually run? Can I possibly trade it off for corals in the livestock for sale or free thread?

swt, Indoor Reef has a large tank in back for macro.
I've seen posts on this board and others that have chaeto for sale $12-$13 for a sandwich bag full shipped.
Trading works.
