Wink It's CO2 not C02. (flame wars = on)

I notice an alarming percentage of people writing it wrong, and think it's important to know what exactly CO2 is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carbon_dioxide

Are you really alarmed by people's typos?

A typo is one thing, but fundamentally misunderstanding a "plantedtank" basic is another thing. Just trying to draw awareness to a growing typo.

How many times do you say "O" for zero? If you do it's wrong.

CO2 is "Cee Oh two" C02 is "Cee Zero two." Pet peeve of mine is when people read off numbers. Like: Eight Thirteen Five Ninety eighty eight fifty three. Huh?

Dilution is the solution for the pollution.

If you agreed with me we'd both be right.

ROAK is the sound a frog makes with a lisp, it cannot pronounce the "c"

So how many people do you think actually supply their tanks with the wrong compound? I am guessing it's 0. Come on man this is not reddit. No need to get alarmed as it does not change a thing!
