 Split  to  2  means  divided  in  to  two,  you  saw  a  Y  tube  connector  there  in  the  picture.  What  did  you  think  it  was?                

   Very Happy  
 
 I  did  undertand  it  was  the  splitting  thing.  But  want   to  know  why  its  used  instead  of  just  a  single  outlet  into  tank.  
 Is  it  at  the  bubbler  outlet  to  break  bubbles  finer?
 
 
 Good  luck  with  the  mazzei,  long  ago  seen  Raghu  mention  about  it.  Never  heard  much  thereafter.
 Thankyou                

 
 Sai,  2  out  let  for  better  CO2  distribution  and  to  reduce  the  out  flow  of  the  water  which  is  coming  out  through  the  mazzei.

 Great  plant  selection,  low  maintenance  and  long  lasting.  Very  eager  to  see  how  it  fills  up  the  spaces.

 I  had  lowered  the  lights  4  inches  on  Saturday  last,  and  came  back  to  see  a  tank  with  Caldophora  that  came  in  with  new  plants  growing   Sad  .
 
 I  was  preparing  for  a  long  battle  with  a  toothbrush,  anyway,  I  put  in  all  my  fish  into  the  tank  yesterday,  only  to  find  my  Puntius  padamya  (Odessa  barbs)  feasting  on  the  caldophora  almost  immediately.  They  were  pulling  out  the  caldophora  entwined  in  the  hair  grass  and  glosso,  without  uprooting  these  plants.  The  Puntius  sahyaderensis  too  help  with  caldophora  but  not  as  well  as  the  Odessa  barbs.  The  fish  were  in  a  tub  for  the  past  10  days  with  very  little  food  thrown  in  every  couple  of  days.

 This  weekend  is  one  in  the  past  many  where  I  am  in  Bangalore  and  not  travelling.  Are  you  at  home  this  weekend?  I  would  like  to  come  and  see  for  myself   Very Happy  
 
 I  would  also  like  to  know  more  in  person  on  the  solenoid  you  are  using.  Tank  is  looking  good,  but  am  dying  for  a  personal  view   Smile

 At  last  managed  to  get  hold  of  an  Omron  Timer  H3CR,  Source  100  -  240  V,  50/60Hz,  through  an  old  friend,  gratis.  Cheering  
 This  has  reduced  my  headache  for  a  24  V  DC  supply  and  I  get  to  do  a  ON  delay  for  the  Metal  halides  circuit.
 
 Now  for  the  Wiring  in  a  confined  space......  Sad  
 
 I  have  fixed  up  one  individual  solenoid  each  for  my  two  tanks.  
 
 One  more  is  on  order  and  should  be  here  next  weekend.  I  plan  to  have  two  solenoids  on  this  larger  tank,  one  for  CO2  and  the  other  for  air.  
 
 Yes  air.
 
 What  Amano  does  is,  his  staff   raise  the  Lily  pipe  by  a  few  inches  to  the  water  surface  every  evening  after  lights  off  so  that  the  surface  of  the  water  is  agitated  by  air  and  water   flow  through  the  lily  pipe,  and  calls  this  aeration.
 The  reason  being  -  CO2  is  injected  to  the  tank  at  a  high  rate  -  3-6  bubbles  per  second  when  the  lights  are  ON,  and  the  excess  CO2  needs  to  be  removed  to  ease  the  plants  respiration  at  night,  not  the  fish  mind  you,  my  fish  are  doing  great  without  the  aeration  bit  in  this  same  tank!  
 I  didn't  use  this  method  as  so  long  I  was  using  1  bubble  per  second  24X7  uptil  now,  but  in  this  tank  with  high  lighting,  I  have  to  UP  the  CO2.  
 
 I  am  not  around  for  half  the  year,  so  the  aeration  part  has  to  be  automated.  Can't  keep  raising  and  lowering  pipes  day  in  and  day  out.
 
 One  Solenoid  will  control  the  CO2  from  0800  hrs  to  1530  hrs,  the  second  solenoid  for  air  will  for  now  work  reverse  and  will  be  ON  from  1530  to  0800  hrs  the  next  day.  Both  Air  and  CO2  will  be  conveyed  to  the  tank  through  the  Mazzei  venturi.  This  is  the  arrangement  for  now,  but  might  change  later.
 
 None  of  this  is  strictly  needed,  but  I  am  playing  around.  Chuckle

 No  DIY,  everything  is  bought,  except  for  the  substrate  and  planting.
