What was the purpose of this experiment? What did you learn from this?

Have you tried washing with vinegar diluted in bowling water or baking soda?

Keep in mind that the 'active ingredients' in the cough medicine are not the only ingredients you are putting into the water column. There's a reason it's called cough 'syrup'.

1.So we had no campus fair, unfortunately, but the teachers picked the top 25 from the pre-AP classes.
I, got picked as top 25 from my school, but had no judging prep

2.We had the secondary district fair at the local community college and got BEST IN SHOW, aka First Place in the ENTIRE DISTRICT from the schools that went. Which means i got 1st in my category: Environmental Science.

3.The Next Fair is in March which hopefully with the committee's ok , due to my unfiled paperwork about the safety of using "drugs" and something else, but if they say its OK i'll go to the regional fair: The Houston Engineering and Science Fair at the GRB CC in downtown, so i'm hoping to do good.

I think it would be awesome if you could relate your tank to a human body. Or use what we know about the body and apply that to your tank.

People get rid of things like carbonic acid by buffing it with sodium bicarb, just like in your tank it acts as a buffer.

Another way people get rid of acid is though respiration. A byproduct of this process is CO2, which your tank also needs.

It would be interesting if you maintain a good CO2 level (30ppm) by running a low ph high acid tank and converting the acid to Co2 though some kind of respiratory, or filtration, process. Kind of running your tank like you run your body.
