CO2 concentration of human breath & Esclipse 6
I have an Eclipse 6 at my desk at work. It's pitiful. No plants, two lemon
tetras and a single cory that hides all of the time behind a rock. I've
thought about converting it into a planted tank. Here's some random
thoughts. Comment on whatever you feel like.
1. I don't know if that little bulb is going to be suitable. Low light
plants, I guess.
2. The built-in filter system will have to go since it causes too much
surface turbulence. One of those little Shark filters might do the job - or
no filter at all.
3. CO2. A small system like that can get by with a bell system to deliver
CO2. I've never messed with a yeast system and don't want to. Is the CO2
in human respiration sufficient to provide plants with what they need? I'm
thinking that a simple bell with a tube that I would breath into to fill the
bell. "It's crazy enough that it just might WORK!".
