Paintball CO2 Tank DIY Question
I saw the thread for the DIY paintball CO2 and was just curious if anyone is still using this setup? I have all of the parts already so I can set it up fairly easily. I currently have a 110 Tall (48L*21D*31H) and dose every couple of days with Flourish. I have a few Java Ferns and some Anubias. I think I may have 1 sword that is still alive as well. Only my Anubias seem to be growing, the others are just surviving. I just upgraded from my 48" stock dual T8 that came with the tank, so I am hoping the extra light will help. I rarely do water changes because my nitrates are barely ever registering higher than my tap water. I want to dose with CO2, but I don't know if I can talk the wife into letting me buy a system. She has, however, already agreed to let me do the paintball CO2 if it will work. I have 3 GBRs and am looking to get a pair (or two) of the Orange Flash Apistos, and I want some good plant growth before stocking the Apistos. The plants are all close to a year old with my ferns and sword approximately 3" tall. My anubias are both around 10" long and 7" tall. Do I do the paintball CO2 or am I better off dosing?
