good that you got a solution.
yes- do test with soap water... a little bit messy but safe you another trip to get the CO2 refilled.

it does looks ok, which part does it contact??

actually, you are not able to rotate the regulator outlet valve ( the one makerd S-Y) by 90deg?- so the fitting will face front instead of down?

the way to do it, is to remove the valve, use teflon tape (PTFE) and reinstall it

cheers

The tank's nut crash with splitter head. Check the bottom picture.

I dont want to take the risk for any leakage if I rotate 90deg then unable seal back... I done some house water piping fix last time, its a nightmare to touch something that had no issue....

if the tank nuts... then you may rotate the "complete regulator assembly"
shut the tank valve, and open the regulator connection... the rough thing just above the nuts. you need to do this evertime you send you tank out for refill right?
Rotate the complete regulator by 90 deg- then screw back the connector.

hope you understand this.
no harm on grinding the splitter a little, but seems more works

what i mean is turn this rough surface- then the top part (regulator body) will come off from the cylinder valve.

the lower part- is the cylider valve- it is to be shut off and remain with the cylinder body.

Usually it should be non-issue but sometime this thing does happen.

The feeder shrimps/thailand ghost shrimps are pretty tough. They can live in BGA infested tank with no problem.

yaya, wait until next refill time, my 2l Co2 for 10g tank, so far run 6 month ady... just drop from 90 > 80%

My next incoming upgrade Eheim Classis 250 + Inline diffuser for this tank.


Got another identical free tank now standby as Co2 splitting is ready.
Thinking dry start Iwagumi style + Caridina Shrimp, looking for inspiration now...
Currently using MC as carpet but its my first time setup so a lot of mistake.
The second tank gonna do it more nicely, maybe challenge HC hmm.gif

Yes, you can either dip in hot water for 15min to let the leaf soften.

Tibun, soft bone from cutterfish/shark sweat.gif

Just added 2 amano & 2 nerite Attached Image
Mainly to control the Algea, but Amano is so aggressive on food, and their size is too giant compare to RCS

if you plant just setup, a lot of unknow species will come out, after the tank stable, only those taken care will survive...
Again Aquascape is not 1-2 month thing... those you see beautiful took time to maintain

I put Chinese Algae Eater & to my surprise they are grazing the BBA on the leaves. At first I unable to ID them whether they're Siamese Algae Eater or Chinese Algae Eater & my LFS don't know either. I bought 3 of the fish anyway. Hopefully they eat all of the BBA before they loose interest.

lol you can just turn it upright using wrench
and reseal it using glue or even seal tape

good quality ones should have rubber o-ring in it
which need replacement
bad quality ones is glued
but even if its glued you can open it with wrench

i was also clueless at start, everything on that can be changed
or maintained so its good to get a quality ones that don't rust

Wouldn't this prevent the exchange of O2?

get some crushed corals to assist molding

the second thing is how stable is your tank?
ammonia level? ph? kh? gh?
don't do huge water change and don't disturb the substrate
usually its the ammonia and ph that kill

normally when doing shrimp planted or non planted tank
you need to stabilize the tank first before adding shrimp
ie: let the tank empty and cycle at least one month by adding little food every few day

shrimp aren't picky eater they will eat anything that is soft or pre boiled
fish food will do too

btw, that quality of cherry shrimp is very low, it will turn transparent in just a few generation
hope that its not costly else its a ripoff
