Even if I did, I am in Canada. They wouldn't make it across the border. But no, I dont. I used to sell, but since the grape calupra has grown to plague proportions it has choked nearly everything. I have been trying to get it under control and it is a horrible sight right now I bairly have any of the "good stuff" left.

I just started a 29 intended to be a reef tank. I was thinking of putting some sea grass (or some other plant), but the wife is against it -- she just wants to see corals and the planted tank has plenty of plants in it, yada, yada, yada.

At least she accepted the fact that I couldn't have a Regal Blue Tang (Dory) in the tank because the tang might grow to 12" and likes a lot of swimming area (the 29 gallon tank is only 12" deep).

I've been thinking about this lately -- what do folks think of CO2 injection in a salt water planted/soft coral tank? I know you want higher pH, but we've seen that pH reduction from CO2 doesn't seem to bother fish.

Thoughts?

Go check out the Barr Report forum. The last time I read C02 in a saltwater planted tank is useless however, some people noticed a difference. They started an experiment involving that but I haven't looked into it. Might be worth checking it out.
