Clowns and CO2

<< I finally evicted my clowns from the planted 75 because of the damage they
 did to larger leaved plants. >>

Interesting. I have four Clown Loaches, a huge Indian Red, a Rubin, a Rose 
and an Ozelot Sword and a huge mess of Vals, driftwood etc in 
a 120. At no time have they proved destructive of plants. Think it might be 
tank specific?  Just wondering.

Back on the CO2 front. My new Bioplast is bubbling away at circa 2 bubbles a 
second. pH is circa 6.8 -- 7.0 in the day, 6.5 at night. kH is nearly 4 I 
think, and gH is also 4. No measurable Phosphates. Nitrate holding steady at 
5ppm.  Since adding the CO2 injection two days ago, these numbers represent 
really a minimal change from before the CO2 i.e. pH 6.8 - 7, gH of 4 and kH 
of 3.

Am I misreading the test kits? Is the above pretty average? The plants are 
doing fine but, I would be hard pressed to say that the addition of the CO2 
has resulted in any dramatic changes. Too soon I suspect.

I was unable to open that URL on Japanese commercial Fishing someone posted 
to the list. Would he mind sending me the URL again privately?

Thanking the list in advance
