CO2 and Sponge filter
So I've been meaning to try a DIY CO2 yeast system. I've noticed that many people are using HOB or canister filters => less surface agitation so that the CO2 can stay in the water longer.
My concern is that I'm using a sponge filter, but I would like to try out the DIY yeast system. The sponge filter will be causing a lot of surface agitation, which will bring CO2 out of solution and completely defeat the purpose.
Has anyone tried this? Anyone have suggestions?
Tank is 24x12.25x12.75 (16.6 gallon, it's odd...I know) I have 2-18" 15WT8 bulbs (Floraglo and Aquaglo)
Inhabitants are 15 CBS, TOO many RCS (100+), 2 cories, 7 otos
Plants are Rotala rotundfolia, Anubias nana, Hemianthus micranthemoides, peacock moss, and Hygrophila difformis, and a banana plant
Thanks for your help!
