Good to hear.

The good news is I am using a fluval 406 on a 36 gallon so if I do end up with a little less flow it should still be more than enough.

Just about all hooked up. I have the reactor in a container for now just incase it leaks a little.

Found this to help make sharp bends with no kinks.

Seems to work well.

Now if I can just get the blue green algae to stop growing on my sand i might enjoy the hobby a little more!!

Hoping the strong canister and more co2 helps.

Need more flow, co2 will help, do you have a powerhead in there? Hit it with hydrogen peroxide in the meantime..

CO2 Reactor Lesson Learned

I don't have a powerhead in there. The tank is only 36 gallons. Hoping the fluval 406 creates enough flow. I keep turning the sand to try and burry it a bit.

Thought the powerhead down low would make the Cory cats crazy because of the flow.

If the above methods don't work with the BGA, then you could use Erythromycin. API has some that is found in the big box stores. Effective and won't kill your BB.

I did a 3 day blackout a week or so ago and that looked like it cleared all of it up and now it is back.

Before it was all over my back wall. Now it just looks to be on the sand.

Might try the medicine and kill it and see what happens.
