I know that there was a thread like this quite a while back, but it didn't really ask what I want to know.

Could you add carbonated water to an aquarium for supplemental CO2 for plants? Would it do anything?

Also, will it harm fish?

I have a soda water maker, so it is very cheap for me to do it.

I know for sure that Takashi Amano was using carbonated water at first when experimenting with plants, but didn't have any fish in them as far as I know. The plants sure did like it Wink

I'm going to look it up, but I'm pretty sure the main point in the topic was that it would be very difficult to keep the levels constant. Amano thought about doing that same thing, but in the end it is just not very efficient compared to other technology that can to the same job better.
