CO2 tubing has thicker walls so CO2 doesn't slowly seep out, because of that, it also is more stiff. I luckily have another cap for the juice container and am gonna get a small Gatorade bottle to drill. This time way smaller, the tighter the better.
Well sometimes they get hairline fractures in store so yeah. I'm glad i didn't set it up, well I couldn't of anyways. UPS desnt deliver today, or it is just because of holiday. I ordered 4 things and they all got shipped separately. Though I got the more important ferts today, so that's good. I need to invest in the iron as well.
Er... Not really lol. It's cracked down the middle of the tank. Good thing i didnt set it all up, would have been a big mess.
Yeah, and snowboarding stuff lol. I might get the cheap one without the electronic solenoid for the 5.5 gallon, since entire setup would be like $60, regulator, paintball tank, and adapter. I would also need some CO2 tubing and a diffuser come to think off it.
No where near lol. I want a CO2 system, but they are so expensive and I would rather have one that has an electronic solenoid because then i don't need to worry about it getting shut off or not. There is one for $30, but doesn't have a electronic solenoid... DIY is getting annoying lol, no matter how many times I put silicone on it won't diffuse. I think it might be the bottle getting chipped on the inside.
It works with some plants, but some it doesn't work as good if they are stems cause the leaves grow a different way so a stem plant like ludwigia will melt its leaves off. It is more for rooting plants like hairgrass, gloss, and baby tears. It is easy to cut them back and their roots help them grow back. It is for getting faster carpets in some cases.
I think a double sword tail would be kind of cool. To get the tricolor a bit better you can breed the dad to a female that has the tricolor. Though this might set the double sword trait in since it might be recessive.
I'll be really interested to see how this turns out. I may try that with some of my plants.
What do you think of double swordtails? It seems that's what my male swordtail may be and I don't know if the fry will inherit that or not. They're still too small to develop their swords yet if they're male. So far I just know the biggest one is a female and she's not tricolored. I'd sell her as a painted swordtail. Only 3 or so out of 6 seem to be tricolored in this batch. Hopefully the next batch will be larger.
I well dry start... Just put some syran wrap or glass on the tank and spray twice daily. This way they get much more CO2 so it grows faster and spreads. The only problem would be that switching to water will cause melts, so you just cut the plant close to the substrate and it should grow back. I think I might get my fish bowl and do this again with glass and always have a supply of hairgrass.
