Co2

Hey all,
Ive done the DIY co2 set up in my 2 foot aquarium.
i have a airstone under my filter on the right side of my tank.
The filter pushes the little bubbles to around half way or a little bit over.
is this ok? will the c02 get to the other side of the tank to?
will it all mix.

    @Mooo should be able to help with Co2.
    Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes & dreams.

    Yes, Hi Adz, this will disperse the Co2 around the tank :)
    Be careful in a small tank, you could get a ph swing overnight when you turn out the light, the plants sleep at night, so Co2 levels can rise to dangerous levels when not being utilised, I hope you did your research :) As It can be fatal,
    Now that I have freaked you out,
    Relax, if your bubble rate( from diffuser) is one bubble every other second, you should be good ;) & you should as a rule, turn up the air at night, or if you don't have air in there, add an extra air point for lights out only, note, also in a small tank, the plants will overgrow it fast.
    After a while you will get the hang of it, Enjoy :)
    Ps, Sorry for the late reply, I'm old and forget where my putta is sometimes lol :blush:
