2. But without the HOB and air stone, won't the fish not be very happy? They have CO2 test kits? I should definately look into those.

3. The CO2 bottles have been setup for about 1 week now. They seem to be giving off quite a bit of CO2, since the syphon filter I use to circulate the CO2 is pretty much almost always half full of CO2 and half full of water. Right now I don't have my water pump yet, so I am using the outflow of the HOT magnum to puimp water into the syphon.

The water hardness is pretty good. I added some baking soda to it and I added epsom salt too, maybe even a lil too much of it, but I think it's normalizing, the pH is pretty stable. Haven't changed. Both GH and KH are off the charts on my test strips.

Interesting enough, witth the overkill in Iron, I haven't seen any algea yet, but if they come they come, oh wells. What else is new... but I don't even know if my tank is suitable for algeas. The plants aren't doing so good, and algeas will probably not survive either

I am 27 years young. Still trying to learn.

Oh and if anybody knows which link I am supposed to go to so I can change my signature thingie so I can fix my filter information, your help will be greatly appreciated.

To fix your quote thingy, go into your profile, there is a link to it on the main page under your picture on the right side. It's kinda fun to mess around with, so I've changed mine a few times now, haha

HTH, Joshua...

Today is a good day, at least it was last time that I checked, haha...
