JeffHerr Sorry, but Glut has only about 12 hours before it has dissipated too much to be useful. Keep that in mind when looking for the best time.

No i think i said something wrong. I can't put it right before lights on. But i can put it a few hours before, not after the light go out.

leo1234 So it won't dissipate until the plants asorb it right? Just wanted to know because with my shedule it will be hard to put it in before light's on.

Jeffww Put it in whenever but I like putting it in during lights on/right before lights on to reduce the overall contact time with my inhabitants.

Excel/api co2 booster?

Hi all quick question, does it matter what time i put this stuff in the tank?
Light on/ or off? Does it do anything if i put it in a few hours before light's on?
Thanks
