Molasses in the mix eh? I guess that would be more nutritious for the yeast, I'll have to try that. Thanks for the idea.
Oh, and my bit observation on the Hagen system... it's too small. Scitz is using it on his nano and that's probably fine, you don't need so much on a small tank. But, assuming you are setting up a larger tank, having two 2 liter bottles for reactors will get you higher output. The bubble ladder is pretty cool, and can be purchased seperatly. Although after using one for close to a year I finally chucked it and am just using a wood airstone to produce a mist of bubbles. Since it's located directly under the filter output the mist gets pretty evenly circulated around the tank. I've noticed much better plant growth, where with the ladder, only the plants imediately surrounding it had any growth. Although, some people don't like tiny bubbles circulating through their tank, it's a matter of oppinion I guess.
