Hi all!
I have been reading this forum for a couple weeks and finally joined a few days ago or so. I can't believe the incredible knowledge base here and all of the great questions people ask.
Years ago I kept many freshwater aquariums but eventually gave up the hobby. A few years ago my son took an interest and I've just been enjoying his aquariums. But he decided it was time for me to start again and bought me a 36 gallon bow front. Shortly after he gave it to me I broke my leg and have not been able to set it up. But while I was dreaming of what I wanted to do I ran across pictures of aquascapes. So I have decided to try my hand at it. I have been reading as much as I could on it and have decided to get my equipment ready for when I can set up the tank. I already have an eheim filter and my aquasoil substrate. But I really need advice on the best co2 equipment. Also need to know the order of my setup. And I'm sure I'll have many more questions as I go.
I'm just so happy to have found a place I can find the answers. I look forward to meeting and chatting!

Thanks Tez! I'm learning to navigate the forum, looking for the best place to post my questions. It's fun but I just keep finding such interesting things to read I haven't actually posted any of my questions yet.

Hi Jnettie it won't be long before you post ...when I joined I didn't know they did pets or gardening, mainly viewed the fish sections

Welcome and to answer your question:
IMO get a CO2 reactor on the outlet of the Eheim.. I went and bought for my setup here and it was a substantial marked improvement for my plants with the required lighting over a ceramic diffuser even with my overflow sump trickle filter. I use a 3x3litre soda bottle yeast-sugar co2 system with and a bubble counter on top.

Jnettie hello and salutations! Notice when I write your name it shows up blue. Now, you just got an alert saying something along the lines of "Canaculus mentioned you in a post" . If you click @ and start to write someone's name in a post then a little list will pop up and as you write the person's name it should show up. Click it and it will alert them.
You try !

P.S. this confused me for a looooong time.
