Co2 tubing help
One of my customers just came in today and gave me his fluval 20g co2 kit, a random diffuser which I'm replacing, and a full cartridge.
I had some extra co2 tubing from when I bought my gla regulator and I cut off a piece to use for this one. The problem I'm having is that the tubing is so rigid when I hang the cartridge on the back of my fluval spec, and put the tubing on the diffuser and the regulater, it won't sit right on the tank, the tubing is making a u shape in the tank itself instead of sitting straight up and down like a normal tank.
If I use airline will that be ok? Or is there co2 tubing that is more flexible than the one gla provided me with my regulator? I would like to be able to start using the co2 in this tank to counter the algae I've had since getting the finnex epoch. Yeah I know strong light small tank. But I wanted a carpeting plant and that's what I got it for. I've been using excel but it's not working the way co2 does.
Any suggestins guys. Aside from its a waste of money etc etc. it's a small tank. I'm not spending 200 on a paintball set up for a 1.6 gallon tank.
must....have.....more....moss n shrimp!!!!!!!!!!
