I just setup my 20 gallon planted tank with automated CO2 injection.....The tank has flourite, Metal Halide pendant, heavily planted with swords, crypts, vals, etc...
How long will it take to observe a "improvement" in the plants??? What should I watch out for???
Im doing this tank before I do the same to my 58 planted discus tank.
My 58 has two metal halides, heavily planted.....and is dong soooo well that I kind of question if i really need c02 on the tank.....test kit says yes....plants dont seem to mind the lack of c02 injection.
I can post some pics of either tank later.
Every thing is going great .....except that I wonder is there a better way to control the flow of the CO2 regulator(bought from a welding supply). Its seems to lose adjustment if i try t maintain a 1 bubble per second flow? Setup is a Aquacontroller that controls the Aquabuschline needle valve that feeds a bubble counter then a c02 mebrane reactor.
