Could it have been the lighting? Apparently they require quite a bit of lighting so..
I found a study which says this species was naturally found in water with a salinity of 3.4!

Have a great day!

Did it go to lime green/white in one go or slowly over the months?

I'm not sure, i had a tank setup cycling and didn't check on it for about a year (had no livestock in it). When i came back to it the plant was white/light green and started falling apart. I didn't have access to the tank over that year so i couldn't check :smile:

I dont add any plant food to my tanks, so what ever nitrates were produced.

But it didn't have any livestock right?

Mine didnt but @opae ula related did so you may be better asking him about the Chaeto.
