    OK great, cheers, now I need to try and find an air pump that is REALLY quiet (my tank is in my bedroom).

    What?? I have been told all plants will benefit from having co2, in fact the guy at the store told me to put the co2 in, take a picture, then a week later take another picture to compare because the difference would be that big. He the Dwarf Sagiteria I have will grow much thicker due to co2 being added.

    Was it all sales crap? This guy is well known to us and someone I thought was very trustworthy for info.

    BTW something im wondering about using this method for co2 is the PH, I will have to refill the container ever 40 or so days, and as it takes 24 - 48 hours for the co2 to build up surely my PH will be all over the place?
