also take note of the duration of lights on. shouldn't be more than 8hrs continuously.

Split timing. 2hr - 4hr. Meaning keeping your light up time 6hrs. 8hrs is in the wild.

It's more convenient for me to DIY a Co2 reactor because i can buy the ingredient(3kg Sugar $3-$4) whenever i'm free and it's cheap to make another Co2 reactor($0.60 for the bottle). $0.80(Sugar and yeast) last for 14days, $19.2 per yrs?

Canister with a timer every 4-6 month i need to go topup(I only can make it during the Sunday), expensive to buy canister(2ndhand 2l $50-$200+ with regulator/controller) if i want to have more tanks it gonna burn my wallet. $14-$17 2L last for about 4-6 month and transport (depend on area) so $40 per yrs?


So i still prefer DIY Co2 reactor.

I think you got it slightly wrong. If you going for sugar, you should look at the 3kg pack size. Like Giant Fine Sugar, 3kg is $4.10 it is more economical if you use both at home and for fish tank. So usually we don't look at the 1kg packing type.

Yeast don't have to stock that much, since you can always stock it when you need it.

Reactor look for the simple JBL type will do. No need guage or whatsover. Things can be simple.

My tank is recovering but due to the recent incident of overfeeding, but the snails population bloom together with algae. I saw Ramshorn and bladder snails. Caught 4 or 5 babies daily. Today saw a full size bladder and a smaller one but matured already.

I'm thinking of getting assassin snails. Will 1 do in a 180L tank, abt 50gallon. Bcos I dun want the assassin to breed if I get a pair or more.

Read that yoyo loach is also good but need to be in groups. My tank still has space but the ground already occupied by 4 Corys and brlstle nose pleco and a gold balloon ram. The bristlenose is doing a good job cleaning up the algae now too.

Is 1 assassin snail enough to do the job? Any other ideas to get rid of the snails besides assassin snails?

Sent from Google PIXEL 2 XL using GAGT
would recommend that you get a grp of dwarf chain loaches, maybe around 5. they grow small - 5cm or so. totally eradicated my snail problem. they feed to commercial food too, so won't go hungry if they can't find any snails.

All I can say is a canister will give more consistent CO2 especially if you use a solenoid with a timer. The problem with diy CO2 is inconsistent CO2 and also there is always a chance the ethanol can get into your tank since it is very volatile.

You two represent two different camps....on CO2....ha ha.

I am from both camps. But I use CO2 tablets before as well. Nowadays I don't even use CO2.
