CO2 reactor works so good it killed my fish!
I changed from a Hagen ladder diffuser 5 days ago to a reactor inline with my canister. Woke up this morning to find to my Discus dead and my Glass Cats at the top attempting to stay alive.
On a happier note the plants are doing better than they ever have. I am going to stick a airstone in the tank while the light is off so some oxygen gets put in and CO2 taken out. Atleast I think that would avoid this from happening again, not to happy about the Discus. I am running two DIY bottles, one is the Hagen bottle, the other a ketchup bottle. Should I try only running on bottle with the reactor? My plants are pearling nicely, usually start around 4-5 hours after the light is on. Any way I could make this work better to avoid fish loss?
