Well, if you have a filter on the intake of a powerhead and you use this powerhead to mist your DIY CO2
always make sure the filter is clean and unobstructed. I have now learned this the hardway. The filter got clogged so the powerhead sucked all the air out of the DIY co2
bottles then continued to suck the mix into the tank.
I did a 70% water change and thought I had caught it in time. Fish looked ok and the water was clear. Woke up friday morning at 5am and the tank was completly cloudy (I had unhooked the co2
the night before so no more mix entered the tank?) and the fish were gasping at the surface, some where already dead. I did another 70% water change. Then I had to go to work.
At noon I got home and again the water was cloudy and the fish were gasping at the surface. Several were already dead. I netted the surviving ones into a shrimp tank. Then did about four 100% water changes. Each time the cloudyness became less and less. So I was hoping it was over. Well it might not be. The tank is looking cloudy AGAIN! Is this a bacteria outbreak?
So I've lost all my bosmani rainbows along with several SAEs and about half my serpeas. Well last night I went ahead and ordered a pressuized system. I got a 10lb bottle, regulator w/bubble counter, bubble counter liquid, and 10 ft of CO2
tubing. Is there anything else I need? I really would like to run this to two tanks eventually. Do they make a 2 outlet manifold?
