    Before I had it on an XP3, now it is on an eheim 2217. 30gallon tank.

    The reactor I made is the standard 2" diameter PVC style. The straight section of PVC is 15". So with all the fittings...

    Guess there you have it. Back to my old DIY reactor. Any way to avoid having to 'burp' it? I looked at the barr external venturi, but I'd like to hook it up inline, if possible. Can someone...

    CO2 Bubble Rate + Pressure?

    I have a couple questions about my setup in general.. most dealing with CO2.

    I have a 30gallon tank, 2-t5h0, eheim 2217.

    I recently had the CO2 tank dump, no problem really. Noticed it in...

    By adjust to the new system what do you mean? I might have an influx of algae and/or slower growth?

    Thanks dutchy, I'll be getting a timer soon. Hoping to make my CO2 last longer. Is 2 hours before sufficient? What about at lights out? Same time for CO2 and lights?

    CO2 Off at Night Question

    I have had my tank (30g) set up for the better part of 8-10 years. All this time I have run the CO2 24/7 - even though I do have a solenoid. I finally bought a decent check valve and think I want...

    So as it turns out I have been underdosing things. I though my spoons were 1/4, 1/8 and 1/16 tsp. They are 1/8, 1/16 and 1/32, doh!. I have only been dosing 1/16 of PO4 and 1/32 of trace. I...

    Well it has been about a month since I had my issues. Everything has come around, until this week. I have notice that all plants are doing good and growth this week has seems to really take off. ...

    Wonder what the percent chance of it getting here intact and fine without customs sticking their noses in there. Also, I would need such a small portion (30g tank), Tom might find it is not worth...

    I am down in Windsor - ridiculously slim pickings for plants in these parts. Lots of cichlid and reef guys around. Virtually no planted folks around. Everything I have ever had has been from...

    I did hear about that auction (as well as the OVAS one 2 weeks ago). Unfortunately it's a little too far for me to go. Wish I could bid online for some plants.. always as I might be in need with my...

    Nice tanks. Was wondering where in Southern ontario you are?

    What about the string/thread algae? Manually remove as there is not very much and it will go away over time as things equalize?
  16. Thanks for the feedback. It's been 2 full days...

    Thanks for the feedback. It's been 2 full days now (and a bit) and I think I see positive results - it's hard to not focus on the bad older growth. The Ludwiga repens is opening up more and leaves...

    Been really watching the tank today. It seems as though there is more CO2 in the water. Damaged ends pearling (which has not happened in a while), bubbles on the undersides of leaves - not sure if...

    So I cleaned out the filter and the inline atomizer. The flow appears to be up a bit, and the CO2 mist is much finer now. I guess we'll see where this gets me. Aside from the PH/Kh which...

    You don't think the photoperiod is too long? Cut is back to 8 hours maybe?

    I guess cleaning the filter and either turning up the bubble counter or cleaning the atomizer is in order? Or perhaps I...

    Certainly makes sense what you say. But why the sudden change with the CO2? I didn't change the setup since the summer time - same tank (yes there is CO2 in it), same atomizer, bubble rate has gone...

    30 gallon, 36x12x18 or so. T5HO, 2x39w on for 10 hours a day. 50% water change weekly (generally speaking - do miss a week here and there). I have been waffling on the EI quantities. I originally...

    I had a thought it might be CO2 (as well as Ca/Mg - that is why I had added the Equilibrium). I am using an Up Aqua CO2 atomizer running at about 40psi and 2 BPS. Drop checker reads yellow (as...
