Re: [APD] DIY CO2 injection not bubbling

First thing to do is to check for leaks. Since the CO2 must
push against the water pressure to get the CO2 down the
airline in the water, even a very small leak and relieve
pressure and prevent CO2 for entering the aquarium.

How long can you wait until the good air fares are gone? 
The AGA 2004 Convention is bit over two months away. But "last minute" fares can be pricey. Not to mention the Banquet and Field trip have limited capacity. Take time to make your plans but don't wait too long.
