thats crazy, im content with the petite has a nice texture once it gets a little fuller, hoping it will fill in eventually between the rocks, probably will try and find some more when i get the chance could be a nice contrast to the hydro trips i have in the rocks

Very nice pics, gives great depth for a small tank. Something so simple works so elegantly. And I need to do a DIY CO2 as well just heard of some people having problems with mixtures, and proper bubble counting. I'm honestly scared to try, I don't want to gas the tank.

its iffy if u want to be super precises in your co2 usage, but with one bottle of diy it really doesn't produce to much co2 not enough to be worried about and if it does produce a lot, u just need to compensate with light and nutrients. i would give it a try if i were you it only cost like 5 bucks for a check valve and tubing and your set rather then the hundreds of dollars for a pressurized system.

youd have a pretty hard time gassing your fish with diy co2. when i did that i used 2C sugar, 1 tsp yeast, and warm water


those plants look great!
