    It is really up to individual. I prefer inline atomizer as I will be aware immediately if I run out of CO2 or if the solenoid is not turned on. Also I am able to visualize the CO2 is brought to all areas of my tank.

    Thanks for the input guys. Since i already have the inline Co2 Diff-user, will continue to use for now, no choice will just bear with the micro bubbles.

    Very neat looking tank and the fishes seem happy and active, thanks for sharing the video.

    Are you planning to tie and grow any moss in the driftwood? Looks like it'll make an nice tree

    Thanks Halfbeak for the kind words.
    At the moment I am just planning to keep the driftwood bare. Let some algae grow on it, give it a natural look.
    In the future maybe consider growing moss on it.

    Oh yes, you're right. Algae will a be more natural then those moss trees.
    But might take some time until it ages and get some algae growing on the wood. I had a bare driftwood and took about 3 months until I saw algae starting to grow on it giving that aged look.

    Re: 2Ft Hairgrass Tank

    help you attached the video...


    plants growing nicely...
    the wood is still looking out of place to me.. :P
    the betta looks sad being caged...
    if you can change the guppies to small fish like neon or cardinal or ember tetra, the tank will look bigger!

    Thanks Fireblade for your inputs.

    Most Betta are kept in small enclosures...this at least gets clearer water..
    I indeed to add cherry shrimps, I have read cardinal & shrimps do not make good tank mates.

    By housing space, you mean more hiding place ?

    As tank mates I had cardinals and shrimps which weren't hostile towards the adults but snacked on the fry that were out in the open. And generally the cherry shrimps should have some housing like small crevices or plants to dwell in.

    Re: 2Ft Hairgrass Tank

    think you should use the link for public view for youtube inorder to embed them nicely
    still think the guppies and betta is an eye sore to the tank.. :P hope you don't mind my frank opinion.
    the most important thing is you like them.

    These is not much privacy settings on YouTube, so not sure how to change it.

    Thank you for your honest opinion. Personally I like the guppies & Betta.
    They are the only fishes visible from a distance.

    Re: 2Ft Hairgrass Tank

    add 10 or more Rasbora... maybe ember tetra or cardinal will give the tank a nicer feel.
    alternatively, release the betta out for a while.. he will be very happy I think

    As for youtube, when I clicked on your link, it directs me to another url
    try something like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kbYP09eENOg
