Hi,

I've been around aquariums for many years, but for the past few months I've been hooked on how to create a fully planted tank. Now here our my specs:

100 gallon wide tank
260 watts of light coralife 4x65 (right now its 2 10k kelvin and 2 acintic light)
going to add fluorite as substrate, still waiting on lfs ot get more in, so far I have 46 lbs worth ( should I buy more? or mix it with gravel to create 50/50)

Now, heres the co2 situation. I have a friend who has a large, probably 20lbs tank filled with pure 02, and he also has a regulator on it, that has two gauges. ( was used to bag and ship fishes)

He said I'm more then welcome to use it, now after I refill it with co2, what other components do I need to get it started?
co2 will make my plants grow fast, but with 2.6wpg is it mandatory?

All comments and tips are appreciated.

ok guys,

so let me get this straight:

-needle valve
-soleniod
-and reactor/diffuser


I think I may go with a solenoid combo, with a ph controller.
then run it through a reactor would that give me everything i need?

Im hoping I can keep by budget of $100 for extra parts for the co2 tank.
wish me luck, still shopping prices.
