Co2 Injection

Do small tanks need Co2 injection? If so how do you inject the Co2?

Small tanks need CO2 to the same degree that big tanks do. It's a matter of how much light you have. Keep in mind that watts per gallon is a ridiculous measurement, and is only good for comparison between similarly sized tanks. What I mean is that you may have less light than you think you have.

I do mine via a lime stone placed inline under the output. Keeps everything out of the tank. Cheap too.
