Hello everyone! I am here again to get some more information. First off, i would like to talk about the CO2 thing and see if i really need it or not.
This is my first real Planted tank and i wanna do it right so i don't learn wrong. I bought a Turbo CO2 Bio system from a thrift store to kinda do a DIY project. It looked like its brand new, nothing seems to be used and it seems to be in good condition. So, what i am missing is a Check valve, a turn off valve and a Diffuser. I have gone on ebay and i found these.
What do you think? I want a way to turn the CO2 "off" so its not always running and to provide checks per second for the CO2 into the tank.
Also another thing is when planting the plants i "forgot" to get plant subtrate and the tank is already set up. I have reed you can get Tablet's for the fertalizer. and place them inside the gravel you already have. What should i do with that?
here are a couple of pictures of the tank and plants. let me know!
