    Interesting -- and interesting also is that the various descriptions (how to do it, why its needed, what occurs) is considerably more accurate than many much more recent things I have read.

    Yes, sadly much information is written only to be rediscovered many decades later. Seems it takes a couple of decades just get a method or a routine into this hobby on most fronts.

    By that time, more research has been done and the knowledge is outdated.
    There's often a lag time of 5-10 years.
    In this case, about 30 years for DIY and about 10+ years prior to Dupla's claim to be the first ones to suggest adding CO2 to increase plant growth in the hobby.

    Clearly, that claim was not researched....... impying they alone... came up with it. Perhaps marketing it in the hobby, but not the innovation of adding to increase plant growth underwater.

    Dupla claims to have introduced CO2 to the hobby and where the first(even though it was over a decade late as proven here...........).

    Folks had been doing it for some years in the hobby itself, and like many self promoting marketing types, they claimed they "invented it" and wrote a book which more a marketing tool, like the Book of ADA, vs a real information book;)

    Amazing, also that magazine cover needs to be blown up and made into a large framed poster.

    Lol. This reads like an article about cold fusion today. "It's too early to tell if it will be effective long term".

    Nice piece of history.
