you cooking with CO2 not gas
It was a not so funny joke I guess...
Anyway, I had bought an aqua medic regulator, and reactor, and bubble counter, and solenoid about 5 years ago. I had forgotten about the solenoid when I first hooked it up and posted. Then I was reading some on the forums and remembered the solenoid. So I have that hooked up now as well. I have the gas shutting off when lights shut off so I wont be over doing on CO2...I have 1 molly in the tank right now, and seems to not be effected by the co2 at the moment.
Unfortunately, I only have test kits to confirm the ph changes...so I guess I will have to wait till tomorrow to check it again to see what its doing.
I have a maxi-jet 1000 running the aqua medic 1000 reactor. It pushes at most 291 gph, which its several years old, and I doubt Im getting that much. It has added some more flow to the tank. and I will have to work on an exit outlet for it. Right now I just have the hose stuck in the tank. I plan on making a spray bar for it...but thats later on..
Just for fyi, I have a Tek T5, which is the 4 bulb model at 39w per bulb. This gives me about 3.3 wpg, also have some Amazonia AS & PS, so let the Weeds start to grow!
