That's it. I am building 2 more reactors and getting rid of my diffusers. Why did I wait so long?

The floor was dry as a bone. I noticed the CO2 bubbles dancing in the reactor a bit and then over time the bubble cloud grew bigger. Even as the gas cloud grew bigger I still did not see bubbles exiting the reactor. After the solenoid shut the CO2 off the cloud dissipated after maybe 45 - 60 minutes. So, I guess I am oK. I think the next reactor will be a bit longer just for insurance. I am pumping about 4 BBS. Question: what is DC color?

Drop checker? No, I need to buy one. The water is more acidic.

Question: is there a glass drop checker that will work on a "rimmed" tank? I am tired of the cheap ones with worthless suction cups.
