I used to use those Jungle Labs CO2 fizz tabs as well, albeit on a much smaller tank (fifteen gallons) - within a month, I ended up with vals that unfurled to over three feet long, and a dense forest of Heteranthera that needed to be pruned every third day! Those tabs are definitely an easy solution to supplying CO2, but I'd imagine they'd get a bit expensive to use on a tank that size; with tanks over 40 gallons, I'd imagine that going high-tech, or investing the time to build and operate a DIY system from a plastic liter bottle, is probably going to be cheaper in the long run. I'm looking forward to your posting more recent pics of this tank!
