I do it by spraying water on a substrate like ADA aquasoil then building it up a layer at a time spraying each layer then repeating the process. With aquasoil it gets "sticky" when it's moist. ...

Yes. I would just get the bigger one anyway. Easier to fill (sort of), a little better to read, and faster reaction time (again depending on the bell size).

I have just one drop checker that...

First of all, did you ever trim with ADA scissors?

I can feel the difference between ADA brand scissors and the "more affordable" Do-Aqua line (same company might I add, both ADA). If you ask...

One of the main reasons I stopped using filter floss (unless I'm trying to clear the water of detritus) as a regular filter media is because it clogs very quickly.

The size directly refers to the physical size of the drop checker. I assume that a drop checker for a 1-15 gallon tank would be smaller in size than one that would be for a 55-90 gallon tank. Both...

If the 2213 needed to be "burped" then maybe it wasn't primed properly to begin with? I have inline diffusers on a 2211, 2232, and a 2217 and never had a problem with Co2 bubbles in the canister. ...

I can only recommend what I use and that is the GLA inline atomic diffusers. Orlando is a sponser on this site also. My inline diffuser makes no noise as far as I can tell. I know what noise...

My GLA atomic inline doesn't but I'm sure it could as the cavity does contain water (that seeps through the diffuser material).

However if you have a "good" check valve it won't allow water to...

Or more simplified:

"Very high light" = more CO2 to keep up with plant demand = dead fish.

In order to not have any dead fish, one can only DECREASE the light level therefore bringing the CO2...

The bubbles are small. I guess its like seltzer bubbles or maybe even smaller???

What are you planning to grow?

What kind of substrate are you using?

What you're describing sounds like early stages of brown algae (diatoms) which is normal in a new tank.

If you're using ADA aquasoil the yellow water is...

Yea I got this algae too.

Tough to get rid of and keeps coming back despite 50% water changes twice a week and removing mechanically.

I've read it's caused by excess organics, but I'm not sure.
