ugh, I tried that (and upping my light) and it was a nightmare. I had a BIG algae explosion. It was probably because of the fluctuations in co2. Or maybe it was a fert issue. Planted tanks are so confusing. I was over there at theplanted tank and when I was doing research on how to get rid of the algae there was so much conflicting info and confusing terminology. Still, an AWESOME place to learn about the care of a planted aquarium!

You tried the yeast way? Well, what I'm doing right now is just seeing how my plants will do with no CO2 and then adding it if my plants are looking a bit sorry. I'm sorry that happened to your aquarium, though

I just have a bunch of easy to take care of plants right now because I'm relatively new to keeping an aquarium in general. I decided to get a planted one due to a suggestion from a friend.

I can help anyone out with what they need haha. Well as much as i know at least.

I hate hate HATE the yeast way. I used to do it and it was.... gross. Smelled like bad beer, messy, fluctuated co2 like crazy and you cant turn it off at night. waste.

The paintball method last a long time. a 20oz tank will last 3 months.

I suggest that if anyone wants to get some great, cheap, rare, easy, hard, any kind of plant, go check out plantedtank.net like I said some people GIVE AWAY free plants. all you pay is shipping.

Im already giving away 1 small package to a guy here haha

Ooo, I'm glad to hear a real person talking about the Hagen thing. I was thinking about getting it. I guess I'll be making myself a paintball CO2 system when I can. I think I'll be making myself an account on Planted Tank as well.

Have my shopping list ready. Putting it together is not the problem, finding all the components will be. No paint ball shops near my area. Will probably have to order several of the pieces online.

thanks for the tip!
