    I just want to start off by saying this is my first post, and that all input is welcome; I’m open to tips/ideas. So I started this 10 gallon tank I had laying around, originally as a strictly plants tank. Filter: Top Fin 10G filter Light: Fluval 3.0 at ~75% capacity 6 hours on 4 off 6 on...

    The setup: 3 2-liter coke bottles with 2 cups of sugar per bottle, tap water, and yeast. They are connected via T-valves to a DIY bubble counter and, in turn, an air stone. As the room is cold, I have the coke bottles in a small heated tank at ~80F. I have a diffuser, but I have never managed...

    Just got my new canister filter and trying to figure out how to integrate CO2. In my HOB, I just inserted a CO2 airline tube into the intake and would hear a tick noise as the bubbles passed the impeller. They had a direct path to the impeller. With the canister filter, the inlet water...

    I'd appreciate advice on best way to add CO2 to my planted freshwater 170 gallon. I have a pressurized CO2 line running ~3bps connected directly into the intake stem of my Sunsun 304B canister filter. I don't see bubbles or "burps" coming from the output and I'm concerned that the CO2 may be...

    I've got a 39 gal tank, currently I've grown a pretty impressive Amazon Sword I attached to a piece of driftwood and decided to start a fully planted tank. I added Flourite about a week ago and already use a liquid plant food. I also ordered a AquaticLife Dual Lamp T5 HO Freshwater Light - 30...

    Hiya, I'm completely new to high pressure co2 systems, but have been doing my research and would like to get a system. It's evident that you can pay a lot of money for a system and avoid the hastle, but the cylinders are always around 500g, and I'd rather not be back and forth for refills all...

    I am preparing to embark on converting my fishroom (2x55G, 2x29G, 4x20G, 2x33G, 6x10G) and display room (300G, 220G, 150G, 90G) to central filtration - I keep all SA fish, and plant the heck out of everything. My question is, assuming I can keep the water system air-tight (going to be filtering...

    I'm beginning to think that some of the bad reputation that paintball systems have is at least somewhat undeserved. I recently added CO2 injection to my 40g tall tank (30"x12"x24), due to space constraints I went with a paintball tank based system. Since the space was far more limited than...
