A Noob ? and an averted disaster! (updated video)
First the question? How do you catch one fish in a large planted tank? That probably sounds like a silly question, but I'm open to all answers. The particular fish that I'm trying to catch figured out that if he just heads to the bottom amongst the tall plants that he's safe. I gotta get him out before he infects any more fish!
Second, the near disaster.
So, I stuck my DIY Co2 line down into the foam that is attached to the intake on my power head. Well, apparently, I got it into the intake tube and it created a vacuum in the line. I looked at my yeast jugs, and they were imploding! The liquid level in the jugs was up to the caps, and some yeast mixture had made into the gas/water separator! (Glad I added the separator!)
Anyways, just an FYI to other noob's out there. I now have the tube inserted into a slit I made in the foam. It's under the intake so the bubbles still get sucked up, but it's a 1/4" or so away from the bottom of the intake tube so It can't create a vacuum.
Thanks in advance for any advice/criticism!
