Interesting point about the CO2; I can definitely see how it'd just go straight up, even in the flow volume in this test tank. So I'd guess in absence of wanting to do a reactor, dose a carbon alternative, or go NPT, tubulent flow would certainly be an asset in certain setups.

Kev, do you know the actual output of your pump that is running through the stainless ADA pipe? I was curious for a reminder about the flow rate.

It is an Eheim 2213 pushing 116gph on the output. Maybe more since I strip out the usual bio media and replace it with something a little more free flowing.

HOOOORAAAYY!!!!! I've been roaming all over the place, which has allowed me to stay away from the test tank with only a few exceptions. Melinda has been feeding Mrs. Jane and said she has overfed most of the time. Anyway, the excitement is that the algae has all but dissappeared. There is just a little smudge left on some of the Anubias leaves, but for the most part it is gone. There are still some organics in there, but it's all starting to go away. Also, the Proserpinaca stems I stuck in there have started to show their submergent leaves, so the lighting is sufficient even at only 9 watts to grow moderate veg.
