I have a 2 ft tank with 2 x 18W PL, 1 x 36W PL as well as 1 x 17W FL and a CO2 fermenter. My patches of riccia dun seem to be bubbling. Is my lighting and CO2 enough? Thanks

As long as your tank is between 30-40 gallons, you should have enough light. The Yeast-fermenting method of generating CO2 doesn't always bring CO2 levels high enough to cause pearling. You also might be outgassing some of the CO2 you're injecting with surface agitation. Or your CO2 reactor may not be very efficient.

As long as the plant is growing, I wouldn't worry about the pearling!
