hi i'm the new guy here....

hi, my name is will and i've been lurking around for a couple days... this is a great site, i've already learned alot, and i just made a DIY CO2 unit per the advice i found here, and i'm sure i'm going to have lots of questions coming up soon so i figure i might as well introduce myself now....

so anyway, i'm a returnee to the hobby after a couple years away.... i have a 20- something gallon octagon aquarium i got from goodwill and this is my first serious attempt at live plants with the usual beginner plants, they are doing good but i think they could be doing better, hence the co2... i currently have an assortment of corys and plan on adding some neon rainbowfish in the near future....

well i just thought i'd say hello, looking forward to getting inside all your fishy heads!

hi sorry i was away so long, i couldn't figure out how to log back on!

just an update... after a few mistarts [the soda cap not being sealed properly], the CO2 is running! I shoved the airline into an UGF tube and the bubbles run up into the power head on top.

I may be a coincidence but almost all of my plants seem to be making almost immediate improvements!

thanks again!
