Good morning!

I've noticed some GHA popping up in my Sump, and it looks like it's hoping right into my Chaeto (why wouldn't it?)

How do you typically deal with this? Do you add Pods? GFO Reactor?

Fun notes:
  • Just finished cycling, so nitrates are pretty high. Doing a WC this weekend to drop them a bit.
  • Running a Prime Fugue light for 12 hours a day, opposite DT lights
  • Skimmer seems to be pulling stuff out pretty quickly
  • Doing Triton method, so there is very high flow through the sump
  • There's really no Algae growth in DT at all.
  • Baby CUC in the sump - 1x turbo snail 3x blue leg hermit
Should I even be worried?

New tank. You might try to remove some by hand until your tank is a bit more mature.

No need to worry. I get GHA growing in my sump with a very similar set up to yours. I just keep it off the chaeto and clean out the refugium area once a month. If the DT looks good then the fuge is doing its job.
