Diy Co2 and air stone.

I have a nutra-fin co2 and its defuser it is bubbling nicely. I also have a air stone in the tank should I put the air stone on a timer. The co2 setup will keep making co2 when the airs off will this cause a problem.

This is in a 29g medium planted tank.

I don't know where I'm going but I'm on my way.

You do not need to have your air pump with air stone running during the day, as this will off gas the CO2 that you are injecting via DIY CO2.

At night, if you want to ensure that CO2 levels do not accumulate too high, you can put your air pump and air stone on a timer so that it will turn on.

Thanks. I haven't been see much grow since I put on the new light and co2 setup, but since I started dose NPK it been looking a little greener and the Greko is growing well.

My red Ludwigia is not showing any sign of new grow at all. I really liked the way this plant look in the old tank. The storks where about 5in and looked great some root shout coming off then the bottom leaves started floating off. I hope to see some new growth soon.

I don't know where I'm going but I'm on my way.
