    Hi, what are you all using for good filtration algae in your fuge? Dont want one that will go asexual and turn my water cloudy...also have a tang that would maybe like something special now and then on the live side.

    Is red garcilia good?

    Chaetomorpha. If you can't find it at your local LFS, I bought a ziplock bag of it off of Ebay for $5.

    a lot of people use/recommend chaeto.
    Personally I use chaeto and sea fans. Not sure the proper name on it bit I'm sure someone else does.
