    Hi guys

    I've planted my nano tank and I'm injecting co2 into it but since the tank is so small, the co2 bubbles are blown agains the front glass which doesn't look nice. Is it necessary in a nano tank to have a good distribution of the co2 or can I just leave it in a corner without blowing it throughout the entire tank? I'm using one of those external atomizers which creates very small bubbles.

    Thanks,
    Gilles

    Apparently, it's not necessary to have your co2 bubbles blown throughout the entire tank. I simply left the atomizer in a corner, result: 2 fish gassed ... I've adjusted the flow (more surface agitation) and reduced the co2 by half (it's now at 1 bubble every 10 seconds).
