diy co2 + hagen ladder vs tank
i'm new to the forums; been trolling for a little bit reading as much as i can and i've got a question that i haven't found an answer for.
i have a 47gl tank (20x24x28 - column) with a hagen ladder / airstone diffuser; and i'm having trouble getting my ppm up to a good level. i figure it's a combination of my biowheel and initial misinformation regarding what the hagen canister was designed to support.
would one 2L bottle with the ladder/airstone generally be a good start for getting my ppm up, or should i hookup two bottles? i'm assuming one bottle would be enough due to the small surface area.
i don't have any water parameters to offer; i restarted the tank 2 days ago and haven't done a test yet.
