2 bubbles per minute is not a lot anyways.
Is it enough to be effective in the tank? Or do you have some super duper efficient reactor/diffuser?

This is NOT a text message with a character limit. You can and should spell out all words. Also your shift key seems to function intermittently. Might be time for a new keyboard.

Buck,

I have to admit that Rex's posts regarding spell checkers, shift keys, and punctuation always make me chuckle. Don't discourage him.
