Re: Too much CO2
I have a heavily planted Five gal. thank with DIY CO2. In it are a
male Apisto. cacatuoides and a bristle nose pleco. they are both doing
fine. Admittedly, I do not perform any tests on the tank, I just do a
weekly water change with peat filtered water.
The tank is lighted by indirect and direct sunlight (depending on time
of day). I only use a powerhead with a small sponge prefilter to
circulate the water. Temp is kept at about 78 - 82 F.
The only problem I had with DIY CO 2 on this tank was when I first set
up the CO2, it foams a lot and can pollute the tank. Now I use a larger
bottle (4L) and fill it 3/4 and have no worries about yeast foam leaking
into my tank.
I would go ahead and add CO2 to your tank. Your plants will love it,
and they will bubble if the light is bright enough.
