Be sure the chaeto gets moved every once in a while. When the chaeto is not tumbled, the chaeto on the bottom of the bunch will eventually not get enough light, and break off from the main clump. That little strand can get into your main tank, settle into the rocks, and start growing. If left unchecked or unnoticed, this is may bother or irritate, or choke some corals. Just something to keep in mind.

is a basic Incandescent Light Strip enough to sustain chaeto?
