Hi All,

Just writing to say I am officially a planted tank owner!! I planted my 29 gal JD tank today. I think he loves it as much or more than I do . He's too busy swimming through the plants (he loves the microsword) to shred them. It has a nice 3 inch EcoComplete base. I have microsword, Jungle Val, Dawrf and giant Sagittaria,moneywort, Lolydella green, java Fern, Anarchis, and Crypt Lutea. Also I have 1.5 WPG right now and I was wondering if someone could reccommend a safe bubble rate on a DIY CO2 system? Thanks, Josh

It is difficult to recommend a certain bubble rate, it depends on too many factors, including the size of the bubbles!

The best would be to get a good pH and kH test kit and look what you get CO2 wise from (for example) a 2 liter bottle. Measure your pH before you start CO2, and then see how much it drops. Add bottles or use bigger bottles if necessary.

With 1.5 watts/gal, addding CO2 is not necessary, but it might still increase plant health, especially if you have hard water.
