[APD] RE: CO2 Losses

I going through a 25 lb tank in 3 months (give or take) on a 75 gallon tank.
Covered overflow (tight, but not quite "sealed", air could get out if there
was a pressure difference).  Normal AGA overflow, Pondmaster 700 pump
returning to underwater spray-bar.  CO2 is added through a DIY 2"x12"
reactor that's in-line with the return.

I don't have covers over the tank and I do have two computer fans keeping
the bulbs cool.  Drop from tank level to overflow is about 2".

That's my experience - if anyone has any ideas, let me know.  I just
consider it an unfortunate side-effect of sumps (to the point where I'm
toying w/ cutting out the sump and going w/ an in-tank plumbed canister).
