I curious if anyone can give me any advice about my plan to set up a pressurized low tech system. please tell me if i am missing something.
Fyi: this system is going into a 40 gallon tall aquarium with 1 finnex 2 led 7000k and 1 Fluval planted led with moonlight. I am dosing liquids twice a week and fertilizing substrate once per month.
I am planning on running a 5 lb. standard co2 tank, attached with a perma seal, Premium AQUATEK CO2 Regulator with Integrated COOL TOUCH Solenoid, AQUATEK CO2-Proof Tubing, Aquatek drip counter/ check valve, Ista Max Mix Co2 Reactor Medium.
Im looking to do it pretty cheep but still decent. how long will a 5lb tank last?
I will also use a fluval co2 indicator kit. are they reliable and accurate.
Any suggestions would be appreciated!
