I lived with a wood stove heating a good portion of my house for about 13 years. You spread the warmth around with a fan. And it's all peachy.

RTP, why do you drive a car that is not direct injection?

Why dont you use solar energy to power your house?

Well you still havenít answered anything.

The question is what is the best level of CO2 in your tank (within 2-3ppm) and what effect does changes from this level have on your fish. I know this because I tested it.

BTW let me explain this again CO2 in nature is less than 1 ppm. What evidence do you have that 30x this with swings as much as 10x are good for your fish.

Iíve checked and calibrate my equipment and tank and do not believe that those are safe levels.

Actually since you donít have any control over your CO2 you cannot say what is safe except that none of your fish have died yet.

Now here is a really tragic piece of the puzzle. If your fish actually spawn, you have no idea what caused it because you do not know what is going on in your tank.

Well I do too thanks for the comment. It is the most logical one I've seen so far.

No actually the reason I started a new thread was because there were too many nested threads and I couldn't find all the people who made comments.

Unfortunately on this forum, the threads disappear after they get too deep and it is hard to find a new post.

All that's left are hooves.


Completely wrong... you control the CO2 in your tank with your regulator and needle valve. The bubble counter does just that, lets you count the bubbles of CO2 being injected into your tank. You actually don't need a bubble counter, it's just a very good visual aid showing how much CO2 is going into your tank at a specific rate.

clear as mud folks? cool. please resume the horse beatings.

I'm not sure if this is a joke but I will stand corrected. Yes you do set the rate with the needle valve and you use the bubble counter to measure the change. I'm not sure what your point is? This is a CO2 in = CO2 out system. What are you trying to say?

Hey I did too. Then why is Tom Barr having so much trouble spreading CO2 around his tank?

OK, YOU WIN! CO2 controllers are the best thing ever invented. Keep using yours, and I'll keep using my wood burning stove, because it works wonderfully!

Oh BTW, I have a pH meter that I have tested my water throughout the period of the photoperiod. pH drops to 6.3 in about 2 hrs after the CO2 turns on and doesn't move off that point the whole day!

Now please tell me how a CO2 controller would benefit me!!!

Can I make a point here. If you want to talk to me it is better to link to my original post and not to some one else.
This causes the nest to get too deep and I cannot comment on your post.

Getting back to your question I'm not sure what this has to do with a CO2 controller. Are you saying that they are too expensive?

That's crazy talk. Fish spawn because they are horny just like every other animal.
