Posting/Thoughts of a new member (cronos)

Hi fellow farmers.
I'm a new member to this forum, and so far I've seen alot of interesting articles. I've been in the hobby for some years, and am starting a new tank.

Here are my questions
1) I saw a post about connnecting your CO2 outflow to an external filter. Does anyone have links/resources on this? If the CO2 is connected this way, won't all of the gas be dissolved immediately?

2) For substrates, I've used a layered combination of normal gravel, followed by 2cm of garden soil and 5cm of laterite (I'm sorry if I don't get the definitions right - I'm from Malaysia and these are the terms we used here
I'd like to hear from anyone who have perhaps used this combo, and have included peat moss within this combo?

3) Anyone had luck with growing Madagascar Lace Plants (Aponogoten sp.)?

I can only address your first question. Go to for a view of his reactor. Do a search for "reactor"; user "wellbiz" and you will get another similar design.
