How long have you been using the DIY method in these two tanks... months... years?
How often do you renew your DIY mixture?
What is your C02 level in ppm?
What color is your drop checker?
I'd be interested in hearing how you maintain consistent C02 levels with your two liter bottles...
I'm not saying that it cannot be done... but unless you have some hard evidence
you can colour me very skeptical...
Remember, maintaining a planted tank is all about consistency.. if your C02 levels are all over the place your never going to achieve balance in the tank!
(without balance you'll spend all your time chasing problems, algae & others)
As far as the OP's original question...like I said, it's *your* tank to do with as you please... Pleas post some pics, whatever you decide to do...
