My First Tank Setup - Dlouly76

Hi All

I just got into this hobby about 2 months and did a lot of reading and my interests went from just having a tank to having plants to aquascaping and etc..etc. I read about CO2 and from there I started building. I just got my tanks pretty much up and running and thought I'd do one set of tanks for aquascape and planted tank.

Here is my attempt at aquascape... I just got the Co2 up but am having microbubbles and first thought it was the co2 but with the co2 off I am still getting microbubbles. I think it maybe my plumbing and how it flows maybe the cause. I have 2 90 degree elbows at the reactor.

Here is my custom regulator (Thanks to Alan Le for advice and the meter)

My CO2 Tank and reactor -May have to fine tune this as my Drop checker doesnt turn green.... wondering if its gasing out at the top of the reactor?? I been leaving it at about 3 bubbles per second for 6 hours a day but in 3 hour sessions twice a day.

Anyways here is my first aquascape - Day 1

Anyways any advice on my setup would be appreciated.
