Im  also  running  CO2  without  a  solenoid,  no  issues.  No  need  to  run  the  CO2  24/7,  its  a  waste.  Hope  you  are  using  the  spreaybar  with  your  2217  to  distribute  the  flow  evenly                

 
 Am  yet  to  install  the  eheim..  yes  i  will  use  the  spray  bar.
 Talkin  about  the  co2  if  not  24*7  then  it  means  tat  i  should  manually  turn  on  &  off  the  regulator  everyday..  and  it  would  be  left  on  for  long,say  i  go  to  work  at  10am  return  back  by  10pm  so  turn  it  off  then..  that  would  make  it  even  more  hectic  than  a  DIy  co2  setup..

 If  you  have  your  lights  on  a  timer  then  you  can  turn  on  the  co2  while  leaving  for  work  and  set  the  lights  to  come  on  1.5  to  2  hrs  after  you  leave  and  off  abt  the  time  you  reach  home  so  that  will  be  abt  10  hrs  photoperiod.  Its  a  little  long  for  a  new  setup  so  little  less  light  or  keep  the  CO2  on  for  longer  in  the  initial  stages  of  tank  setup,  say  first  1-2  months  and  have  short  6-8  hrs  photoperiod.  The  excess  CO2  will  be  ok  during  this  initial  cycling  time  and  will  benefit  the  plants

 so  finally  got  the  fish  in  the  tank..  i  know  its  bit  early..  but  considering  that  i  had  another  set-up  up  before  the  present  one  using  the  same  substrate  for  about  2  weeks  before  i  pulled  it  apart  to  come  up  with  the  the  one  present  now..
 
 eheim  is  up  and  running..
 
 the  tank  now  has..
 12  cardinals
 10  x  ray  tetra(not  sure  of  the  name)
 2  Assassin  snails
 2  RCs
 2  yamato  shrimps..
 
 DHG  seems  to  be  growing  slow  but  steady..  removed  other  stems  that  i  had  in  the  back  ground..  placed  a  stone  tied  with  moss  at  right  corner..

 Hey  cut  off  the  excess  tubing  on  the  eheim  filter.  The  bends  and  loops  you  have  now  will  just  restrict  the  flow.
