update on co2 system

Hi everyone!
I spoke with darkCobra this Morn(what a nice guy) and he really helped to clear things up. I went over to Pacific fish store in Manhattan even tho I knew they didnt have the system in( I called before hand). I went over to see the system they have because the one I will be getting will be the same but up dated. I also bought the ferts That Chris suggested Flurish Iron
Nitrogen
potassium
I also bought some fish
White cloud albino
2 snail and
1 parrot feather plant
anubias frazeri
anubias Barteri
narrow leaf sword
now I just have to try and catch a japanese cleaner fish That I had no idea would grow a foot. Ive tried the bottle and hes the only fish in the tank that hasnt gone in. Ive tried the net he hides no idea how Im going to catch him.

Was actually Phosphorus I recommended, not Iron. Flourish Comprehensive takes care of the iron (it's a micro) in most cases by itself. You might be ok without the phosphorus for now. But if hard green spot algae (GSA) starts showing up more than before, it's a sign you really need it.

If you have two nets, you might be able to chase it into one using the other. That's how I got mine. I had to move some plants, and took a half hour if I remember right.

Thanks DarkCobra
I do have dark hard green spots on the glass in my tank. Guess I need to go pick up some Phosphorus next week.
I cought the Japanese cleaner !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I had the bottle trap in there yesterday and he was the only fish in the tank that didnt go into it. I took it out and really had given up on catching him when I noticed how active he was when the lights went out so I put the bottle back in and sure enough this am there he was. I have him in a open container. Durring my lunch break I will run him over to petland and dropp him off.
You know your nice! Dont fight it!

Thanks Chris
I had him in an open container and all day I was worried he would die but he was fine when I got home and the pet shop took him back np.
Now next monday I can go over and get some of the otta(sp) fish for my tank.
