Red Sea Bio CO2, and sizing a DIY CO2 system
Hello, I have started my 38 gallon planted tank. I have been messing with a Red Sea Bio Co2 system, I am not sure about it on a few points.
First, the co2 is diffused into the tank via a small power head. I am pretty sure that this is not that efficient. I am toying with the idea of making a reactor to replaxce the power head arrangement.
Secondly, it is really only shooting co2 bubbles into the tank every few minutes. Is this common?
Finally, this system only has a single quart bottle. If I were to replace this with a DIY system how many 2 liter bottles would I need to get close to an optimal level of CO2?
