, my means for keeping the pH from crashing is two-fold. Rather than give you the step-by-step and rather dull long-version, I'll paint the bones for you.
First I have no clue what my pH is. Not a single clue. If I'd have to guess, it's probably somewhere between zero and fourteen. Second, I ignore the fact that I don't know if my pH crashes from all my CO2. (And please note that I'm not all that mad at you anymore for reminding me of this ignorance. I'm totally over it.
So you see, my method for preventing excessive CO2 dosing to crash my tank's pH is quite bullet-proof.
Seriously, my method of keeping a tank would probably make most of you cry. I just watch my plants and fauna and go by what I see.
, didn't you go (or aren't you in) New York? How is/was it? Yeah, those diffusers were pricey, but they're cool, bro! Especially the small one. I got them at Aqua Forest Aquarium here in the city. They've got a bunch of ADA's new budget line of stuff, Do!aqua.
I was talking to one of the shopkeepers and they weren't sure how well the stuff would sell, so they only bought a limited quantity, but apparently it's selling quite well and I'm sure they'll end up stocking my more of each item.
The Downoi is cool, huh? Yeah, I really like it. Tank's missing one more plant, but I haven't the foggiest what it should be.
Tank got a haircut.
