|sindy777||I don't know but is it necessary to have an airstone in your tank onvery you've started injecting co2 to feed oxygen to the fish? I don't have many plants.... if so would it only need to be used at night when the plans are also feeding on the oxygen and off in the day? Thanks for your post!!! This was truly amazing work and very helpful!|

I'm a newbie at escaping with knowledge of fish keeping and understanding the chemical cycle. But all this was new for me and took me about 3 months to get all my research together on getting and understanding all the equipment to come along with this new hobby.

can you use the co2 given off by a homemade brew of beer?
Can you use the co2 given off by a homemade brew of beer for your CO2 supply for your fishtank or are there other gasses given off in the reaction that could hurt the fish?

Thank you for this description. I've been slow to get into CO2 for my planted tanks and I'm more confident with setting it up now.

Take a look at what people have said about the electronic regulators that Aquarium Plants.com produces:
Nowadays, it may not be possible to build a cheap (dual stage) system due to supply and demand, but when I built my setup, I managed to get everything (dual stage regulator, needle valve, solenoid, bubble counter, all fittings, and a 10 pound CO2 cylinder) for around $200, making this particular regulator not worth it.
That being said, you could purchase the cheapest single stage keg regulator that you can find and put a solenoid and needle valve on it, and call it a day too. Ultimately, it will achieve the same goal (namely, injecting CO2 into the aquarium).
What happens along the way (reliability, accuracy, whether or not it breaks down) are just additional things to consider that may increase the cost of a product in the end, so what you decide to purchase in the end depends on what you value the most.
The same goes for anything else (cars, electronics, clothing, etc). Why do some people buy a second hand car, while others purchase luxury sedans?

What am I missing here?
It is simple, it works, costs less and fails safe!
Maybe it is like the IPhone. The equipment used to make it is not worth the price of the phone but it is cool to have one.
I guess a really good regulator is not cool if it isn't the same old way.
