In my basement I have this little tank doing very well but now I have to get the CO2 out because I need it in another tank (Vivarium Competition tank), as I couldn't find a reasonably prized dual needle valve I'm forced to take this tank down. I have non CO2 tanks running but I am hoping for another idea to keep the plants at their best for a few months (until november). Anyone here with a good idea?

Decrease CO2 and light gradually in the course of 2 weeks, this will let the plants adapt to lower CO2. You will loose somne color and plantsize but they should survive.

It also depends on the sp. :) i had Microsorum that grew big in high tech and placed it low tech, it started to propagate like mad and the mother completely died on me. Forgot how long it took, but it went relatively quick, browning leaves with loads of little plantlets to it. But have to admit, i didn't do it gradualy..

But why not make a dual needle valve yourself?.. All you need is a 3/8" or 1/4" or depending a combination of both, brass T and a niplle or hose connectors and a second single needle valve. Since its on the low pressure side teflon tape will suffice. :)

A good reasonable priced webshop for such suppliies is
