Since I got my Co2 diffuser...I am seeing bubbles come from my plants...is this a good thing. Is it oxygen that's coming off of them?

Re: bubbles no longer around.
Could it be because the nutrients in the water have 'run out', try adding a plant fertiliser. Or perhaps the rate of CO 2 infusion isn't enough and lack of Co2 is the problem, in which case step up the Co2 rate.

It's a very good thing. :nod: Congrats! Your plants are giving off oxygen. This means they are healthy. What kind of CO2 system and lighting are you using?

I am using a Hagen Co2 diffuser and my lighting is 3 20 watt fluorecent bulbs, Sun glo at the back, life glo in the middle and a regular fluorecent in the front...but will be replaced with a power glo for the front.
