Question Co2???????????

Iwas thinking about chemical infusion and binding when i clicked the link mentioned in Bernies thread. If you put carbon i your tank it absorbs pollutants and mineral waste! BUT.... would it mix with the oxygen in the water to produce CO2??? If so this would be good for plants. and planted tanks????

Default Re: Co2???????????

Act. carbon can produce CO2 (carbon dioxide) Yes! but to how much - I'm not sure. If you are using fertiliser though, the carbon will remove most of it.

Fish don't like too much CO2 in the water & plants release it at night. Also it can lower PH levels & getting the correct balance of CO2 can be tricky.
