Aquarium Carbon
Can someone explain how the cycles of carbon dioxide in the aquarium water through the snails and Elodea?

Snails breathe CO2 produced as the bacteria in the feces of the snails. The CO2 dissolves in water to form carbonic acid that dissociates into ions. The Elodea carbonate ions absorb in the leaves where it is used to form carbohydrates through photosynthesis. Plants also breathe Elodea when there is no light.
