AQUATIC PLANTS DIGEST V1
Well I have grown aquatic plants for years without co2 and am considering
giving it a try on my 50 or gallon tanks. What i would like to know from
the experienced CO2 people is how much CO2 should I actually be adding to
My initial idea is having a 2.5liter bottle under the stand with a regulator
on it. What should i set the psi to? then from the requlator I would run
it into air lines and probably 3 needle valves to control it going into
air stones and then simply sdjusting them for a small flow of bubbles. Is
this a viable idea?
Another thaught that I had was adding a siloniod valve to only alow CO2 in
my tanks when my lighs were on (usually about 9 hours a day on the 50 or
11 hours a day on my 80) this should reduce my costs when the co2 is not
needed. Is this a wise and viable idea as well?
Also what is the maintance cost on these systems? How long does one of these
2.5 liter bottles last in a set up like i'm considering?
