Bio-Wheel and Co2 loss ?
I check the APD archives and could not find any
information on the effects of from Bio-wheels on Co2-outgassing. Has
anyone done any experiments comparing bio-wheel Vs no a bio-wheel in planted
tanks ? I recently started injecting Co2 using a reactor and I think the
bio-wheel may be working against me. I do have discus in the tank and
bio-wheel is probably contributing substantially to the biological breakdown of
nitrites produced the protein-rich discuss diet. I have no detectable ammonia,
nitrites, nitrates ~10-25. I keep them clean and turning at
the slowest possible rates by controlling the direction and flow from the
spray-bar. Filter is a Magnum 350 Pro, Bio-Wheel 60 (two wheels).
Your comments are appreciated. If I don't
hear from anyone maybe I will do an experiment with my tank.
