    In regards to lighting for the chaeto...I went to a lfs and was looking into a small led lighting for my chaeto....now I already have the proper lighting but I was wondering....can a small led power the chaeto growth....cause they had this small led fixture for like 15$ and it really did look cool....but it didn't specify wattage !!

    I guess it depends on the actual light but it doesn't take much to grow chaeto. You could do it with a $5 shop light.
