I have a 55g FW
that I just finished up planting my first few plants in. Currently, I am running 1.75wpg (6500k) over the tank. I can, if I choose, jump it to 2.3wpg. Most of the plants I am anticipating placing in the tank will be low light with some (maybe 1/3) being med-low light.
Currently, I am unable to part with the cash necessary for a Co2
injection system. Thus, I was thinking of doing a DIY until such time I can afford it. Would the benefits be worth the effort? I dont mind doing the work, if I will be able to see the benefits. If the growth after adding Co2
isnt all that noticeable, I cant see adding it.
What do you think? Is it worth it? Will I see the benefits?
