I Watched BRS interview with the maker of Vibrant and he said that you can leave chaeto and it should be ok if only dosing every two weeks.I have been dosing vibrant for the past two months on two tanks at twice per week. Before I used it, I tried researching and I also read that it may lower your NO3 and PO4. But for me, my NO3 and PO4 raise since using vibrant, (probably due to taking off the refugium offline). My point is I think it is different per tank due to many variables.
My suggestion is if you want to use Vibrant, you should raise NO3 and PO4 to the desired level first and you can start dosing after that and continue testing those levels while dosing, if your nutrient levels are dropping feed more (I don't really like dosing nitrate and phosphate to the tank, would rather feed more) and vice versa. You can feed different types of coals and fish food to raise No3 or Po4 more based on ur need. I don't think vibrant will drop nutrient to 0 in one day, you will see a trend over time.
One recommendation is to remove macro algae from fuge before dosing (if you have a fuge), as many ppl reported their chaeto started dying and release stuff back into the water). Just my two cents.
i’m two doses in myself and chaeto is fine so far
