New plants came in!! 2.5 is FILLED IN!
That's quite an improvement - it's looking fantastic! Good job :)
wow the tank is really coming along :D keep up the ggod work. i can wait until i can get my planted tank started lol :D
Thank you! I just love it! I am setting up my DIY co2 today I still have a little diet coke to chug so i can have the bottle! :D
hehe have fun drinking that :D
Good luck with the co2- what recipe are you using? I had a bit of trouble getting mine to work in the beginning, but now it's chugging away like crazy.
I have it written down in the kitchen, but I think it's just 2 cups sugar and 1.4 tsp yeast. i dont add baking soda because my pH is naturally very high.
what a difference,i really like it,
well done on the hard work. :)
Cool. I use co2 to lower my pH as well. I ended up using this site's directions:
It's a lot to read, but it's actually extremely well researched. It's got more of an aseptic method which avoids a lot of issues people don't think about. I definitely recommend it.
Also, you may want to mess around the with recipe and see if you can't make it produce slightly less co2. I believe the same amount of sugar and less yeast it the way to do that. I've got this system set up in my 10G and it bubbles every 30 seconds. I almost worry that it's too much co2. In a 2.5 gallon you want to avoid crashes, as they are more likely to happen. I'll calculate the actual dissolved co2 in my tank right now and post it, so you can get an idea of what may happen in yours.
Edit: Just calculated my co2 and it's 15 ppm which is just about perfect for a planted tank. Concentrations over 25 ppm can be dangerous to the fish.
That would be great Okie. I'll read up, thanks for the link.
