Tapwater has a fair bit of CO1 in it. Thats probably whats doing it.

I've noticed that people who have their tanks on "system"
(constant influs of fresh water from the tap, owerflow goes
down the drain) seem to be able to grow anything with sero
effort. Any why not? Higher CO2, stable water chemistry
(no buildup buildup buoldup *flush* 50% water change
buildup buildup) - it more closely resembles nature.
