I had to use knife but I did get quite a tight fit though. I used a fanta bottle at first and worked great then swapped over because I put the cap on when glue wasnt 100% dry ( I know daft mistake.) so im leaning towards the crappy bottles.

Ive never grew a amazon sword but since I trimed it there has been really long green root like things suddenlu appear they are actually that long there sticking out of water and starting to produce a flower by the looks of it. Is this normal for a sword I thought they would just grow back looking like the rest of the plant

I wish i had taken some photos of my tank before i put the Co2 in as the plants have practically doubled or tripled in size.
You photo is proof that Co2 actually works.
