ii) Started to transplant from the old tank, it took hours for me to select & trim all algae on the leaves.
v) Temporary solution, DIY CO2, had something in mind to upgrade to an external CO2 tank with a solenoid.
vi) After all stuffs ready, bottle+sugar+lukewarm water+......where the heck of my yeast? Searched all areas in the fridge....couldn't find it, I was really fell from the sky. End up have to drive to the nearest store to buy a new pack of instant dry yeast. Wasted an hour, the water became cold, and need to redo for the lukewarm water....later +yeast+soda..........ready to produce CO2.
vii) The previous bottles had threw away, need to make a new one.
poke a hole in the cap & slot in the pipe connector, then seal the small gap with glue gun.
viii) Turn on the other side of the cap and seal with the glue gun for double protection.
ix) When the glue cold down, its really hold tight.
x) Now is the part between cap & plastic bottle.
xi) Try to flatten the glue in between the cap & plastic bottle with the hot gun.
Tips: How to check the leakage? It is simple, put your ear near to the bottle, blow in some air through the pipe, if can't hear the whizzing sound, means no leakage.
xii) Went out for awhile to get some rocks & a background plant, really hate the LFS...no name tag on the plant. Another nightmare on separating the infected hairgrass & the healthy one.
checked water chemistry, all okies. Wait for another day to let water get crystal clear. And more plants to add in later.
