Hello Everyone

I joined back in July and never really posted anything before. I was just reading the threads and learning as much as I can.

I like learning about aquatic plants and love seeing all the beautiful tanks that everyone has on this forum. I'm tempted in buying a CO2 system but I have a lot more researching to do (still scares me).

I was intimidated with CO2 at first also, just take your time and research, research, research. There are multiple ways to do CO2 and you just need to find what's going to work for you, your tank and your budget. Welcome and good luck!

CO2 is definitely something to not be afraid of! It may seem a little intimidating at first, but once you understand how it works, it is a lot easier.

I started myself with DIY CO2 before I went pressurized. For more information regarding the latter, please check out my Guide to Pressurized CO2 (linked in my signature below).

Welcome! Don't feel bad, co2 scares me too and so I decided I can live without it, and so far so good Do alot of research and in the end do what you feel comfortable with.
