More verbose! I am sure most every one is pretty busy over time with their tanks.

That is a really long time I think. I have never tried or thought of trying CO2 but lately I have become more curious, so I could grow some plants I might otherwise not be able to.

It lasted twice the expected time. That was 24 oz tank. Imagine a 5 lb tank (80 oz).
That's how I felt last year. DIY is a low cost investment and good way to explore its affect on the your plants before diving in.

I already own a tank (kinda big) from a soda machine, probably still has CO2 in it!

I'm currently sitting down taking a break from cleaning my 56. I've forgotten how rough big water changes are with a bucket. Must find a way to hook up my python in my bathroom. The only faucets I can hook it to are the ones outside. Three 5 gallon buckets down, probably another three to go... then filling it back up. My back is aching already, thus the break. Guess I better take it slow. Once im done I'm heading out to get Trogdor some better food.

Where's the pics? You know we want to see pics!!!

I just fed a little bit today.

Observed that the little Celestial Pearl Danio babies I added into the 12G tank yesterday are showing more color and they are getting along with the tank mates and even were in 2 groups, (now there are enough for that ) closer to the front of the tank, so easier to see! They are becoming one of my very favorites.

The Blue Velvet mommas are carrying some babies. So hoping that there will be a big burst of blue babies in a few weeks. There are still a bunch saddled. Getting even more excited, I could have a tank full pretty soon.

Decided to get another 8 CPD if that is the sale deal when I go back in a week or so, and also my 5 Chilis are looking good in the 6.6G Edge tank, so I will get another few to add to their group. The Fire Red Shrimp momma is carrying eggs now and hoping they will survive and grow up. Fingers crossed.
