    It might if the bag is clear enough and allows enough for through, but I think it will clog up pretty fast. Have you looked into media baskets? That might be a better way to go depending on how your tank is laid out.

    I use a plastic strainer type basket, and have since I started this hobby. I got it at the big box store- hardware, gorcery.

    I currently have a huge mass of chaeto in my sump.

    Is there a reason it needs to be "in" something?
