MANY questions with co2 and others
First off, I want to say I'm sorry, everyone probably looks at me as the annoying newbie who won't stop asking questions, and wish I would shut up.
I made a thread about this, but I didn't get any responses so I'm starting a new one. 46gal, 36in beamswork led, 8.5 hour of light, dry ferts, sand substrate.
I want to do a rescape, and add the following plants
1 - I know co2 helps all plants, but do any of these plants NEED co2?
2 - The main reason I like presrized co2 is its longevity. I don't want to be mixing diy every week. Any way I can do diy and have it last a few weeks, or is my tank to big?
3 - I was looking at co2 art, and saw the have soda stream co2 kits, would that work for me?
4 - I have heard that diy co2 smells. Is this true?
5 - I was looking at the DIY Co2 Generator D-301 and D-501 for citric acid and baking soda, does anyone use one of these? What size tank, what's you mix, how long does it last?
6 - Am I over thinking this? Would liquid carbon work?
1 - I can't decide on a Ludwigia, would one work better then the other?
2 - can I mix them, to have it look like a bush that has many different types of leaves?
3 - is my light high enough? I can't find any info on what it's par rating is?
4 - Will I need root tabs, or are my dry ferts sufficient?
