Looks great. For the Chaetomorpha you'll have to find a brackish one. The full saltwater version will not survive in brackish. It will break apart over time and melt.

I bought the full saltwater one when I first started. Image

In Italy I did not find anything, I tried twice with the salty one but as you said it melted now I'm looking for the maritime ruppia which they told me is suitable for brackish

As I understand there are various species of Chaetomorpha and you will have found the one that adapts more easily, I have tried twice with different species but nothing

I would love to export but when I look into countries rules for receiving live plants its gets a bit crazy, the macro algae for brackish i grow gets pruned and put in the bin every few months to keep it under control.

You started with the full SW macro algae? I tried those since it's cheap and many for sale on eBay. Do you think any of those would work? I didn't have a good experienced with it and figured the one that google sells is a variety specifically meant for brackish. I heard of others trying full SW but none had any luck other than you.

No luck. I meant I started out with it but like your experience it turn white and died.
