Sometimes they'll release what I think are seeds which allows them to spread to areas in the tank that you wouldn't expect!

All happens with submersed growth too, I haven't tracked it enough to...

I'm confused with what you're proposing. I'm not sure if that would allow the regulator to seal at all even afterwards and you'd just get CO2 leaking.

If you really want to use a paintball...

I probably need to clarify, and say that you can do it with a glass diffuser, like those ADA beetle ones or the cheaper "me too!" diffusers from other companies. I guess an inline-reactor would be...

If you spend just $20 on a SmartParts Inline On/Off you can attach any of the regulators designed for the larger CO2 cylinders to work with paintball CO2 cylinders.

It is pretty straight forward. ...

Over my winterbreak (nearly 4 weeks), I just cut photoperiod to 1 or 2 hours a day. Keep CO2 on. No ferts. I typically come back to a tank that doesn't even have much algae aside from green dust...

PH of 7.5 seems a little high for them, but I'd imagine they should still do fine as long as you aren't concerned with breeding them. I've actually had some boraras uropthalmoides in water with a pH...

Are you misting your tank? If so, then you may not need to have high amounts of dissolved CO2 in your tank.

Spraying a "mist" of CO2 around the tank seems to work pretty well, as the CO2...

I agree with Saraja87.

It is possible that they aren't used to the CO2 concentrations in your tank, so running an airstone would take care of that!
