Some will argue.
Why worry about gha in the fuge.
Like you said a good haven for pods and bristle worms
There is a risk it moves to the dt.
When I harvest the chaeto, I pull the chaeto with gha.

ok so do i just do a normal harvest then but also i read that if it gets covered in gha the cheato can die so should i do a saltwater dip on it to get rid of that part then

The chaeto and gha can coexist.
Just remove extra gha when the fuge needs emptying.
