Bummer about the liquid co2 and baby dwarf tears...I have some questions about the DIY co2 then...
For one, is it unstable? How doni knowi I have too much or too little? I don't want to gas my fish!
Also, my mom said she doesn't want it to look "clunky," as in having a random 2 liter bottle with tubes coming out of it visible. I could put it behind the tank (as I have a black background and you wouldn't be able to see it) but the 2 liter bottle would be tall enough to stick up in the back...would there be any way t use a smaller bottle? And if not, would I be able to put the two liter bottle on the floor? Would the co2 still be able to make it's way into the tank that sits on the table?
Another question, how d I get the co2 into the tank? I heard that air stones aren't effective for it. I know people just stick the airline tubing straight into their filter, but I have the tetra whisper internal filter 3i so that wouldn't work...what do you suggest?
With the DIY yeast system could I then do the plants I am talking about?
And does pferts have the iron, like the other ones I mentioned that I have? Is it absolutely necessary? Tis is just a 5.5 gallon after all...I am not really wanteing to spend a fortune on it
Than you for your help!
