  • Ive done it, now what....

    Ok im joining you all in the world of CO2! I just finalized an agreement tonight to purchase the following

    10lb cylinder
    Milwakee regulator and solenoid
    glucose filled bubble counter
    some tubing.

    All for $90. tank is unfortunately mostly empty so I do need to fill that but there is a paintball place not far from me that fills tanks so hopefully wont be too bad.

    Now to figure out what tank to put it on lol.

    I could do the 75 show tank but that has found a really nice ballance so far

    Or I could put it on my 40gal plant and angel grow out tank which is being taken over by bba lol.

      I'd suggest adding it to the 40G since it has a BBA issue. The CO2 could help control the algae and then you could add plants to the tank.

      Yes, with a tank it doesn't cost all that much. I can fill a 20 pound bottle for about $25. And, that lasts me 10 months on the 90G.

                  Im just looking forward to losing the WALL of BBA on the back of the tank.

                  I swear the back of the tank is actually fuzzy.

                    That's awesome! I'll wait a month or so and let you make all the mistakes. Then you can tell me so I can try to avoid them! Perfect plan eh?

                        I'm using a 20lb tank, regulator, solenoid and currently just an airstone in the tank. I'm planning on building a DIY reactor and I have all the stuff except my piece of PVC for the main body. I'd like to use clear pvc but it's going to cost a but more than standard dwv or schedule 40/80 pvc. I've definitely noticed a huge difference in my tank so far. My BBA is melting away and my plants are growing very well. You will be happy!
