Yeah I just started pressurized and I see now the difference between 2 bubbles per sec vs DIY 2 bubbles per sec. I thought there were alot of bubbles before! lol
True it does waste more. but I cant say i care at the growth rate I'm getting. And i'm at 2 bubbles per sec and every inch of the tank is covered with that one powerhead. If I did use a reactor I'd still use 2 bubbles per sec so... to me it's not a big deal the results speak for themselves.
AH! i need tog o over and subscribe, some plant sales have left me with enough to finally become a member. Yeah, I was gonna build a reactor until this method was working for me. I hate to try to fix something thats working so well.
i even turned off the co2 today for about 10 or 15 minutes and i still had a champagne glass from the pearling going on. I'm still not seeing the quicker pearling. It's still taking my riccia about 3 hours to show bubbles at the taops of the leafs if you can call them that.
also in the third pick what was called green spot, if you look close theres a green blur, it's a tuft of what in the algaefinder looks like filamentous. its worrying me, but it isnt too prevalent... yet...
