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.
