First time with CO2
I have not had good luck with Live Plants in the past, and assumed
that it was always due to poor CO2 content in the water. I had them
in a 29 gallon tank with one GRO-LUX and one Cool white ligh.
Ammonia and Nitrites were not even trace. I was told by the pet
store that I frequent not to be concerned with nitrates as the plants
would 'eat' it for food.
Yeterday I constructed a CO2 generator out of a 20oz soda bottle,
some airline tubing, and a small bottle. I am using yeast and sugar
to generate the CO2. I moved all of my plants to a small desktop
aquarium (5 gallons) and added the CO2 rig to it.
My concern is to water quality. Should I stop doing water changes to
the tank? Should I add the Flora Pride? Will my Ammonia, Nitrates,
Nitrites, PH, etx. be affected by the CO2?
