You probably shouldn't run co2 until you get more plants.

Don't worry, the co2 will start producing more if you mixed it up right. Maybe try gently shaking the bottle

I'm afraid you're wrong on this. It keeps my 10gl at 30ppm of CO2 with 1 coke bottle.

If you have no luck using the Hagen canister, switch to a 2L coke bottle. Even the small coke bottle produce more bbs than hagen canister. I have no luck with hagen canister also, even with my own mixture.

i just made a DIY CO2 bottle and stuck the bubble hose in the bottom of my hob filter, works great...and the water level was up enough to keep the sufface agragation to a min.
