just a poll to check.. how many of you do this
As of right now my Co2 runs during lights on, and off during dark hours. I need to get another check valve so I can run the air pump when the Co2 is off.
you dont really need a air stone at night for the most part.
I do run them at night.
co2 24/7, No airstone. No problem.
diy co2 24/7 difused through my internal filter no airstone.
I run an air stone 24/7 with no problem my drop checker is always green.
run co2 at same time light is on...at night co2 off and no air stone. Would be interested in any advantages to air stones at night...
Pressurized CO2, lights on - Noon-8PM
No CO2, lights on - 8PM-10PM
No CO2, lights off, airstone on - 10PM-Noon
I turn off the CO2 a couple of hours before lights out to save some CO2. The plants use what is already in the water. The pH goes up .1 or .2 during the two hours.
I was going to run the airstone at night just to see if it helps against BGA. The main cause of it is having 0nitrates though, my ferts should arrive today though.
