I would use a lilly pipe simply for the ease of night time oxygenation. Besides other benefits, that seems already enough.

Thanks for the replies.
I am using an ADA light and ferts. "Brightly K" is potassium, so I will pump and extra 3ml daily and see if it helps. Maybe the warmer water effects the chemical balance.

Wait for you tank to stabilise. Then add 10-20 amano shrimp at a minimum. Use an air stone or lift your lilly type pipe above the surface at night. You will have no problems. They are tough, busy and...

I am afraid it is hard to see, but if you loo]ok carefully the brown coloration is visible. These plants are about 3 months old so I do not think there is any special leaf damage.

I agree. I tried it many years ago and soon got fed up with the whole thing. I am just using the small CO2 bombs and it works out to about 1.50 Canadian per week. Less than the cost of a beer.

I would buy an ADA lilly pipe because saving 10 dollars and then having it break is a false economy.

I would forget the drop checker. 1-2 bubbles per second is fine for most applications.
