Just wanted to point out you will need a different filter to do CO2. All the splashing from the HOB filter will outgas the CO2 as fast as you can add it.

hmmm, lights out is also my bed time so I cant wait too much after that for the fish to fall asleep. How about feeding at 7am (my lights are on 4pm to 12 midnight)?
