    I have just started a low tech low light tank. I was wondering if anyone had an opinion if an aircurtain would actually be beneficial as an artificial co2 supplement. albeit it only raises co2 very slightly.

    I switched to low tech low light because of busy schedule and being away from home 5-7 days on a stretch from time to time.

    i'll post my 5 gal tank pics




    I had this setup before i subscribed here.. so i wasnt able to prep a good substrate. Only later did i read Tom Barr's low tech article.

    I dose trace one a week.. hmmm absolutely miniscule amounts.

    plants - sword, water sprite, christmas moss (philippne moss) , anubias petite, and bacopa monieri

    Lights 16 watts normal daylight T5 , i did that based on watts:area ratio based on Amano's tanks ( 200 watts/sqm , low light...400 watts/sqm, medium light ... 800 watts/ sqm, high light)

    fishes/inverts - serpaes, dwarf gourami... and some shrimps
