Hi.

I am new for a planted aquarium. I have a small 40 Gallon tank, with some tetras, a Blue Gourami and a pair of Angel. Now i have a planted setup but i am not using any kind of Filters and didn't use any CO2. yet. But my plants yet going fine but slow growing.

Now can any one tell me how can i introduce CO2 regardless of any Hazard to my fish. And please do tell me how much light is needed for such an aquarium. I have 2 CFCs bulbs of 15 watt each and two tube lights of 10 watts each.

Please need advice

I don't know what the rules are for posting links for other forums on here. But there is an excellent forums for planted tanks. planted tank .net

I also recommend checking that forum. Planted tanks have so many special questions, it does almost require a full forum to address the issues and that forum is a good one. Many of the same people involved.
