    CO2 injection along with the strong light is detrimental for your succes with plants .
    Most of them would struggle at best without an additional source of CO2 /the most important plant Macro nutrient .

    Yeah for sure. Total cost for my system was about 10 ($13). And was probably the best purchase in the tank.

    No i didnt. Not good practice i know. I'm all for honesty here and not advocating it, but ive not quarantined a single fish in any of my tanks. That said, i get all my fish from the same small store thats privately run. They run meds in their tanks and i trust the fish.

    Bit of of DIY co2 in there, tiny bit of micro nutrient dosing at water changes and decent substrate and you cant go wrong!
