    Dual stage do it youself fancy parts builds.

    I will say this upfront, I am out of my depth when it comes to co2 so I've always just purchased complete kits, but given that my setup is a 10 kg tank and an Oxyturbo regulator and 3 way branch I would much rather I drop some coins and buy something really nice but y'know, not lottery win nice...

    Lets play detective

    I present to you a mystery who done it. My green rasbora's have been in quarantine and fattening up nicely since just before Christmas and I want to shut that tank down, so I did the same as I do when I add shrimps to the tanks. I did a 50% water change before co2 comes on in the morning to...

    Reduced light duration, increased co2 and induced algae?!

    On my nano as part of getting everything ready to send it home for the summer I decided to reduce the photo period from 8hours to 5hours and to change when the lights came on so I'd be able to observe the tank at a more reasonable hour, I also felt it prudent to bump up the co2 a touch.
