I turned off my filter to feed my fish a minute ago and noticed that my radican sword appeared to be leaking airbubbles. I started looking closer and the radican, its plantlet, A. reineckii, and my italian val are all pearling! First time ever!

Lol Sir. My plants started pearling yesterday for the first time too, after I added another DIY CO2 bottle with cigarette filter tips. :D
Congrats!

Good job. My plants pearl often but they dont look healthy, covered in annoying hair algae but they still let out a nice constent stream of air bubbles.

The only time I have observed pearling is when I have done my tank maintainance and did some pruning. I'm not sure if that counts though, the trimmed parts are the parts that are leaking.

I think 1 bottle is not enough lol. Maybe three would be perfect =)
