[APD] Re: Circulation
Best bet for a planted tank is the small power-head mounted a good
couple of inches below the water's surface. In most instances the air
pump idea won't get you far with a plant tank, as you WILL agitate the
surface, dissipating all that lovely CO2 you just went to great effort
to put in there. Having said that; if you're using something like
Flourish excel in place of CO2 injection then surface agitation really
isn't going to be that much of an issue.
I'm looking for suggestions on creating some circulation in my 20gal
planted aquarium with minimum surface agitation. I wondered about
getting an air pump and running a "T" off of it to have a few air tubes
down near the substrate...or maybe a small powerhead/other options??
