I just want to add for those wanting to tumble that’s great, but not needed at all. I have a 150g Rubbermaid sump and keep chaeto in a laundry basket. I just restarted chaeto for fun. I started with a clump about 1/3 the palm of my hand. This is 1 week later.


So that was 1 week growth, no tumble. Here is this weeks growth, actually 1 day short, so 13 days growth from the tiny 1/3rd palm size in top left image.

So while it can be fun to experiment and tumble, it grows crazy without!
That is some awesome healthy looking Chaeto right there!!

Do you take notice when your coral starts stretching or shrinking?
