 Will  surface  water  movement  &  disturbance  cause  co2  leave  the  tank?
 
 
 Setup  details
 
 Planted  2*1.5*1.5  size  tank.
 
 No  co2  injection
 
 power  filter  with  spray  bar.  spray   bar  is  kept  below  the  water  level  with  out  let  holes  facing  the  surface.  This  setup  is  causing  water  disturbance  on  the  water  surface.....
 
 
 Kindly  explain  me  members

 If  you  have  heavy  surface  agitation  then  most  of  the  CO2  you  pump  into  the  tank  gets  wasted.  But  this  is  for  a  Tank  with  Co2  injection,  
 
 Do  you  plan  to  have  a  CO2  system?

 Surface  agitation  will   bring  down  the  co2  level  if  you  use  pressurized  co2.In  that  case  you  can  try  Seachem  Flourish  Excel  or  its  chemical  equivalent  Glutaraldehyde  25%  which  I  am  using  and  I  have  got  good  results  with  it  in  my  low  light  nano  tank.More  over  if  it  is  used  in  your  tank  regularly  it  will  bring  down  the  algae  level.But  apply  precaution  before  using  as  it  is  lethal  at  high  concentration.

 Surface  agitation  and  loss  of  CO2  is  a  concern  only  when  you  have  a  Co2  setup  in  place  for  a  planted  tank
 
 OR
 
 In  a  regular  tank  ,  not  exactly  a  planted  setup  ....  ┬áhere  you  would  need  surface  agitation  to  be  there  so  that  exchange  of  gases  happens  at  the  surface,  this  can  be  achieved  with  a  regular  aerator  and  airstone.
