    Well, you missed a great presentation. Good explanations on everything, took plenty of notes. I am already making plans to be at the picnic on June 10. See you there?

    I am sorry I missed this presentation as well. Tank looks wonderful. I can see your using CO2 in the system by the bubbler (might not be right term) on the left hand side, but I am not sure what that upside down cone is on the right hand side of the 5/7 picture. Can you let me know what that is? Thanks for the help.

    That is a drop checker. It is a simple device that measures CO2 levels in the aquarium. Typically when CO2 levels are low it will be a Blue color, when CO2 levels are optimal it will be a Green color, when the CO2 is getting too high the indicator will turn a Yellow color. So it is quick and easy way to make sure your CO2 is in-line. Typically you want the drop checker to turn from Blue to Green within 1 hour of the CO2/Lights kicking on. That usually gets you around 20-25ppm co2 levels.

    Obviously it is just a visual reference checker to be used a guide and a first indication of something getting off track. So testing is still recommend from time to time to get an actually CO2 reading.

    Thanks for the quick reply Jakub. Makes a lot of sense. Being in Quality, I am used to have visual controllers and verifying these visuals with actual detailed analysis. Best method to control a process in a timely manner.
