That's common for the product. I've found when I first buy them it's a very light color that darkens considerably as it ages.

Nightly after lights out is best if you don't mind the noise of the splashing. It will remove the CO2 faster and increase your O2 level which is a very good thing.

I'm a bit late to the party, but I've only had one check valve that has lasted more than a few months for me and that's a Dennerle CO2 check valve. I've used brass Clippards, "stainless steel" valves...

I'm not sure there is such a thing, lol. What you're doing sounds fine to me. I do a 70% - 80% water change on my 75g every four or five days. They make everyone happy, fish and plants alike.

I actually removed it from both my 2076 and 2075. Seemed like it might cut into the flow a bit.

Yes! I think I'll get a 2 liter bottle, fill it with media, attach a powerhead and stick it in the tank. It should really add to my scape. :eek5:

Unless, of course, your plants are in poor health due to a lack of either of those. In which case, an increase would help avoid algae by giving you healthier plants.

I find ferns do well with the whole range of ferts, N, P, K and trace. They respond really well to CO2 also.

I like a large school of small fish in a large tank. It seems to make the tank look even larger.

It's worth a try. It's an effective method as long as your canister can handle it as Wasser mentions above. I can't speak for an Eheim classic, but it has been working well with my Eheim 2075.
