Not tons of growth yet. I've only had c02 on it for 6 days now. Relearning planted tanks lol. Been strictly reef for like 5 years now. It would probably yield better results in the hands of a seasoned pro. I'm still not getting any pearling.

I guess with the intent that the co2 bubbles go into the blades of the pump and get dissolved better. Don't know if it helps but it seems like it should.

If you aren't getting any pearling, up your co2 levels and check dosing.

Well according to my drop checker Im about maxed out on c02. As far as I know anyways. It varies from green to a little lighter green. Maybe its my dosing. Right now Im using up all the seachem products I have left over. Then Im switching to dry ferts that I got off a member here.

And input?

Well none that I have to report because some difficulties in life came up lol. But, I could tell you that just the one on its own was not enough for my tank.

Once I got it up high enough to make a decent spread, the intensity was not as strong as I wanted it too be.

I do however think that If you were to use two on a similar tank setup. I would work quite well!

Hope this helps!
