    How can I get the chaetomorph to tumble cause I've tried an air stone and I've tried a 70 gph pump and a 525 and none of them work so what can I do to get it to tumble

    Yup
    Tumbling is great but not always necessary. Mine grows fantastic without tumbling. Just prune it frequently or the stuff on the bottom that isn't getting as much light will fade and breakdown.

    I agree with whippet. All Ya need is some decent flow, keep it trimmed and the" proper" lighting
