Fluval Flora CO2 mod...will it work?
Just looking for an opinion.
I just picked up a Fluval Flora to replace a 10 gal tank that I started to deal with too many plants that I acquired when setting up a 0.9 gallon tank. The Flora makes more sense, size wise, than my 10 does.
I like a lot of things about the Flora, the size and shape being amongst the best. But the double bell CO2 diffuser thing is lame!
What I'd like to do is run an airstone, or even a cut off chopstick, right next to the intake of the Fluval filter that came with the Flora.
Will that diffuse things enough? I'll build a DIY bubble counter before this really gets up and running so I can adjust the CO2 from the stock cartridge. I hope that little cartridge will last long enough. Any suggestions on bubble counts for this tank?
The other big modification I have already made was to cut out the foam background around the heater and filter so they occupy less space within the tank. The silicone holding it to the back is drying and should be ready to go for a Sunday transfer of plants and livestock!
I'll post pics then.
