Thanks for the info on the canister. I'm going to do some more research now and pick one up tonight. I don't really know what happened with the co2. I bought one of the ones you mix the yeast and reactor stuff with water, let it sit for 24 hours and hook up to the air pump. Well somehow I managed to get the mixture to spit directly into the tank. My nitrites, nitrates and basically everything went crazy. I didn't loose any fish but gained a whole bunch of algea and my tank had to cycle again. Luckily my hubby was home from work that week and kept a good eye on it and did an immediate water change the next morning. It was too much worrieng about my fish and tank everyday for a week till I got it under control. I'm scared to even attempt it again.

Holly--maybe you should try using Flourish (it is plant-available carbon in a bottle). You can put a certain amount in every day or every other day. It really helped my plants and is inexpensive. I am going to take a guess and say you live in an area with hard/basic water. That makes plant growing a wee bit more difficult, unfortunately.
