i've been doing extensive research on building a DIY CO2 system for my 
planted apisto tank.  i've read all the risks and what not involved in doing 
this but i have just one last concern that most of the sources i have read 
have not mentioned much.  will added CO2 cause severe algae blooms?

as of now, the ten gallon tank i plan on testing this method on does not 
have many plants, just a few e. tenellus, some h. micranthemoides, a large 
clump of riccia, some salvinia, and java ferns.  i'm pretty sure their 
comparatively skimpy numbers (as opposed to my forty gallon tank that 
flourishes without CO2, though it could probably be better)and might not be 
able to comletely compete with the algae.
