I'm talking about this one:
( A-175 Fluval 4 "Plus" Underwater Filter - 110 V )
I'm just wondering if using an underwater filter would reduce the agitation on the surface enough to keep enough CO2
in the water to avoid using an external CO2
Basically, I have two HOBs and whether I need to use CO2
or not, am I going to have to discontinue use of them in order to grow some healthy plants. I'm not talking the status of "planted aquarium", but I'd like to be able to have enough green in the tank that the fish have something to swim around and hid amongst.
I've only been doing this a year, so I'm a little wary of the CO2
since it could hurt the fish if not used correctly. I really can't afford some of the setups that folks have (for CO2
). Just trying to get as much education as I can so I can make an informed decision.
I'm trying to get the lighting up now - hoping to get some replies on the Nova T5's so I know what I would do for an enclosure (or if one is needed).
