DIY CO2 was, Re: Aquatic Plants Digest V4 #164

THanks Roger.  All of this, as well as the help I have gotton from
several other ppl helps tremendously. I am beginning to sort this out.

The only thing I am unclear on in you post is whether you are saying
that just using an inline valve to reduce flow increases my risk of "pop
bottle pistol" accidents. It would make sense.  I can bleed some off,
can't I?

I did read the horror stories on the KRIB and am proceeding with more
caution adn less confusion.
