Re: Trickle Filter & CO2
On an unrelated topic, has anyone got a trickle tower
running on their
planted tank? How does it affect your CO2 levels? I
seem to be pumping CO2
into my 20g at a rate of knots yet I cannnot get the
level up past 9 mg/ltr
(yet. And i have a good reactor - it's all
dissolving). If I seal off the top
of the tower with cling wrap, that'll keep in the
CO2, right? But then will
the bacteria asphixyate? Should I ditch the whole
system and just switch to a
cartridge filter in the tank?

>>Yes, I noticed the same thing. I have an Amiracle
wet/dry filter and it seems to really dissipate the
CO2 because of the overflow box and water exchange
through the bio-balls. I started with one of those
Carbo Plus CO2 unit which worked well but just
couldn't produce enough CO2. So now I switched to an
Ultralife CO2 system with a reactor and all ... and I
really have to pour on the CO2.
Hopefully, Chuck Gadd will chime in on this topic. I
believe he has a trickle filter and CO2 injection.
