Yes they are.Are the bubblers for aesthetic effect? You don't need them for aeration if your filter is appropriately sized.
Of course I do! I even bought a rocking sunken ship. They make my inner child happy.bubbles are for surface agitation, more surface area, more o2 mixing into the water. the bubbles themselves don't add o2 to the water. if your filter agitates the top of the water enough, you don't need bubblers, unless you like the pirate ship treasure chest that opens every few seconds
Thanks, I'll look for some at the store.Get some suction cups with hose clips to hold the airline against the side of the tank. Without the air of the line pulling up the bubbler up it should stay put. I wouldn't run tubing under the substrate, just along the back of the tank.
Thanks!If your plants are growing ok, I wouldn't even bother with Co2. I have a couple Co2 tank setups sitting around and I don't even run them anymore. They just seemed to cause more problems with algae then it was worth. Unless you are actually good with balancing Light levels and Co2 (which I wasn't good at). You might be better off with just some good fertilizers.
Btw amazing looking tank, I'm super jealous.
I haven't looked in a while, but once upon a time they used to sell weighs to wrap around air line to help hold it down. I used to try to use objects like rocks or rocking sunken ships to hold airline. Suction cups work great for a while. Then invariably they get brittle and fail. They are my last resort.[suction cups] Thanks, I'll look for some at the store.
What "light" that is not 100$ fancy light should I get for my tri-betta tanks? Their poor plants died, no light apparently.
