    Hello everyone, I'm new to the aquascaping hobby and just started my first planted tank. It's a 7-gallon tank and is two weeks old. I am having issues with my Mini Christmas moss and am concerned because it has been yellowing for the past few days (planted about five days ago), and I have been...
  2. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    Hello, Am New to the aquascaping world. I have a 16 gallon (60L) tank with a 2kg CO2 system. I started 4 days ago with les then 1 bubble per second but my Co2 drop checker stayed for 2 days blue, so raised the co2 to 1 bubble per second and stil it stayed blue but a little lighter then earlier...

    I have had the unfortunate experience of having too much co2 in the past so I am exceptionally cautious when it comes to adjusting my co2 levels. I am not certain if this was the 1/16th to 1/8th knob turn on the co2 valve, or whether or not I'm just paying more close attention since having...
  4. Fertilizers and Water Parameters
    I've done about a week's worth of research now and I've read that injecting co2 does lower the ph AND that it doesn't actually lower the stuff that affects the fish. Like kh or something I can't find the article now of course. Won't ph swings from 7.4 to 6.0 everyday stress the fish? Sorry...

    Hi guys, I have a 10 gallon with a citric acid co2 reactor. It's always worked really well with me manually turning it on and off, however now that I am out of college and working, it's hard to have the flexibility to do that consistently which is harming my tank. I tried purchasing a co2...

    I have a CO2Art Pro-Elite regulator with a second manifold. I was wondering how long of a length ofCO2 tubing can I run to a second aquarium. The aquarium that I want to run it to is about 20 feet away from the aquarium where the CO2 cylinder is. Will this work? Are there any special...
  7. DIY
    I just setup this FZONE DIY CO2 setup, and its run out of CO2 so I needed to change the material. Well, I took it out and looked at the bottom of the cylinder and for some reason there is a crystal precipitant that has formed and HOT water isn't doing much to it. Is there a way I could get it...
  8. Algae
    I have just experienced sudden, rapid plant growth these last few days. These plants are growing like weeds and managed to grow almost a quarter to a half of my 75 gallon tank in just four days. However, I also noticed that green dust algae and thread/string algae started popping up. Could this...

    Hey guys, I made a couple posts here regarding pressurized co2 and most members advised that I purchase a "legit" expensive system and not tinker with the diy stuff as well as the paintball stuff. I have a 75 gallon planted tank, and want to stimulate the plant growth. Because of the cost, I...

    Hey guys. I have been letting my plants grow wild in a "proposed" dutch tank. Everything went batsh** crazy a while back with presumably 'micronutrient toxicity', BBA, String algae, and more. I have since got it under control but I'm still stumped on ludwigia natans super red. I dose full...

    I set up a new 30 gallon about 2 months ago and it's been going pretty well, most plants are doing really well and have grown incredibly fast in the last few weeks. Still having some slight issues with my repens, lost more than 100 of the 150 I initially planted. Good news is that the ones that...

    Hey guys, Im new to co2 and wanted to know what you guys thought of a paintball co2 tank for pressurized co2 setup. Currently I have a planted 75 gallon and would like to grow the montecarlo carpet better and have been thinking of investing in a co2 system. Because it’s my first time, I want...

    I am new to the planted tank hobby and unsure if I need CO2. This is my second tank which is a 32g (my first is only a 5G) with internal filtration (sponge filter, filter pad, polishing filter, chem green, fluval bioballs) using a 180gph pump. I have 7 female bettas, 2 netrile snails, and a...

  15. Algae
    Hi! Can i please get some help identifying this algae? I had a big CO2 fluctuation a few weeks back (CO2 ran out and wasnt running for a few days then after refilling was pumping way too much into the tank), ive gotten the levels sorted now but as a consequence this algae is threatening a take...

    I am looking into getting a CO2 setup and wondering if I could get some help. I have an AOI with two pumps and wondering if the inline diffuser atomizer is the way to go. Also, would I need to buy the more expensive regulator with an additional manifold and additional diffuser since I have two...

    Hey Guys, I have a 50g moderately planted tank with CO2 injection. 1 airstone, and 1 sponge filter for aeration. I am in India where it's quite hot in the summer due to which my tank water temp stays in the 30 - 31c range (86 - 88f). I believe the tank water is not retaining oxygen because of...

    I have the “Pollen style” bubble counter/diffuser and just set it up today. It was a pain to fill it with water, for starters. The issue is that I cannot set my CO2 past 20psi or else the bubbles become violent and too large, as if you had just an air hose without an air stone on it. I’m not...

    So I am running a 55 gallon planted aquaruim with a sump and internal overflow box. I just added CO2 to my system, but am finding the design of my system with the overflow box in the center created split water circulation patterns (see pictures). So the CO2 from the diffuser only circulates on...
