Setting up Co2 tomorrow-need guidance
So I have a co2 system coming in the mail tomorrow. To say I'm excited to set it up is an understatement. This is my first time doing this though so I have some extremely basic questions.
First off, when I receive the system, do I need to bring anything besides the co2 tank itself to get it filled? Didn't know if there were any weird laws or anything.
Secondly, this is being added to a planted tank with some fish and shrimp in it. I don't want to shock/kill them so I assume a slow and steady approach to turning up the gas? Any suggestions on how long of a period I should take to reach my set level of co2?
Anything else I should be aware of/know?
Thanks in advance.
