so... I'm going to slow my CO2 rate and increase my KH buffer.

What is your preferred method of increasing KH?

Heating DIY CO2

My DIY CO2 output goes down significantly 5-7 days after making it... so I'm having to replace it about once a week. It seems like people usually say their CO2 lasts about 2 weeks.

Riccia Light Requirement

I'm adding CO2 to my 10 gal tank and I am wanting to grow riccia in it. Do you guys think that a 15 w 65000 k regular output fluorescent will be enough light?
