    dear all
    just joined the gang.i am using an azoo ceramic diffuser and the external filter spray into the tank is directed above the diffuser at 90degree, so the small CO2 bubbles out of diffuser is forced by filter water flow sideways along the length of tank. i have a 30 gallon tank. is this method good enough for CO2 diffusion or should i go for a CO2 reactor?
    thanks

    This is the method I suggested to increase plant growth. Stick with it.

    dear tom
    thanks for your reply.i became your admirer the day i read your E.I article in a website.i am from mumbai ( bombay) ,india. i hope my thirst for knowledge on plants and aquascaping will be adequately fulfilled in this site.
    dear cornhusker
    i am using a solenoid valve to turn on the CO2 two hours before the
    lights come on and after about 10 hours i turn it off. the lights are also on for 10 hours a day . what is your opinion on this? do i need to change anything?
    thanks
