I ordered a nano diffuser but it won't be here for a week or so. I was just bored the other night and built my DIY co2. I got a .59 cent diffuser just as a temp. The bubbles just stick under the glass top and eventually shrink down. Seems to be working.

yeah i noticed that as well. you know how the bubbles that get trapped and you would have to use a magnet to force out the other bubbles? it's basically the same thing, if enough bubbles get trapped the edge glass top acts like a huge bell and it will slowly diffuse into the water. but i think a diffuser is a much better thing since it stays in the water longer.

My tank isn't on a perfectly level surface so the bubbles gather at the left hand side and slide over to the opening. They're concentrated in that area so I don't need to use my magnet to clean up the bubble mess. My diffuser should be here next week some time :-)

Very nice! Are they hard to clean? I always thought it would be hard to scrape algae off the glass since the opening is small.

Not at all! I haven't had any major algae so far. I can just pull my two pieces of wood out and can get my hand anywhere in the tank. Sure it's harder than an open top but it's not impossible to clean

Wow that is looking really nice, much better than the ugly yellow spotlights that it came with. Where do you plan on putting the diffuser and what are your ideas for hiding the tubing?

I got a new fern today from Capitol Aquarium in Sacramento. The place is really cool and worth checking out if you're in the area. I also got two Endlers. So far they seem happy and colorful in their new home. I rescaped since the last photos too. A hair cloudy still but I took some pictures anyways!

Incredible look! You'd certainly have to have a low maintenance scape. It doesn't look like something you could get in to every day.

I love it! good idea keeping the scraper in the tank

Is that Fern aquatic? it looks like the Fern they used to sell at Petsmart which is not aquatic.

Hmm, I'm pretty sure it is? I got it at a pretty reputable tropical aquarium store??
