Hi there all!
I have been reading this forum a lot recently having rekindled my passion for aquatics. I've got a 20gallon planted tank with breeding apistogrammas, tetras and corys.
I would like to set up some Co2 for my tank but I need some advice. The guy in my lfs obviously wants me to buy his top of the range kit, but i cant justify the cost and I've done some research and think with a tank the size of mine I could easily get away with doing it DIY style, trouble is I don't know where to start. Any advice is welcome and appreciated, speak to me like a child though please, I'm literally clueless and words like "diffuser" mean nothing to me at the moment. Please help!
This is the method I use, and it works like a charm. A Jello CO2 Thread. My Jell-O lasts about a month, and I just change out the yeast water every two weeks. It's been running like this for a few months with no problems.
Right quick update, today i got the last few bits i needed. And created my bottle and bubble counter. My next question is this - once its all up and running, how many bpm should i be aiming for with a 20g aquarium? Its not fully planted, i've got some stargrass at the back, a few crypts, java fern, moss and some swords.
