Ladder + Bell question
Ok, so I've been reading old posts talking about placing a bell over the nutrafin ladder to keep bubbles in the tank longer. There have been some posts saying that it would not do any good since the remaining gas is mostly o2 at that point. The question is, since I use 3 bottles of DIY co2 connected to that ladder and that the bubble flow is quite constant (like 1 per second or so), will all the co2 be dissolved at that point? Would a bell help in anyway?
My glosso has come back from the dead since I added more co2 bottles, so I'm trying to get the maximum from diy as I can. I believe most of you will suggest a powerhead on top to break the bubbles but since my plants are all the way to the top I'm afraid the extra current will blow the plants away from the tank sides.
Anyway, thanks for the help, its always greatly appreciated.
