Average DIY CO2 Cost? Should I go CO2?
So I just recently put some plants into my 10g tank and I'm thinking of buying another 4 or 5 plants and throwing them in there, especially so I can get rid of my silk plants. I just purchased pretty much the whole flourish line. Just have basic sand, but am looking to mainly get fast growing weeds, so I don't think I need to spend $20 on some flourite? I have 20w of light, but my reflectors are horrible so I'm going to go to home depot and get some aluminum and polish it. I figure that will be enough light?
I want to go DIY CO2 (can you use small bottles instead of 1L or 2L bottles?). I'm just afraid the cost is going to shoot up. I know the CO2 itself is cheap, but I'll need tests, a diffuser, regulator, and other stuff?
Will CO2 make my java moss, ferns, and hygros grow a lot faster or is it just a little more? Currrently dosing with Excel every day.
