drop checker leaking?
I'm still figuring out this CO2 thing (I've always done pretty low-key DIY CO2, but I guess it's time to step it up). So I put one of those little drop checkers in my tank, and the next day the fluid inside it was gone--I'm assuming it leaked out into the tank water. I did a massive w/c, and everybody seems to be okay, but I'm not crazy about putting random chemicals into my tank.
So, since I still need a drop checker, does anyone have any advice on how to be sure it doesn't happen again? I double-checked everything before putting it in, and it all looked tight, but clearly I was wrong. Is there a better drop checker to use?
