Looks like some sort if irrigation tubing... Is it less flexible than regular CO2 clear tubing?

Fine turn needle valve with very little adjustment in turning

What kind of tubing is that (black)?

Good to know, thanks!

Do you turn off CO2 at night? I found some (old kind of) reports that folks had issues next day after night shut off with presure dropping and the rate of drops in bubble counter was going down. I suspect not enough pressure from the regulator to support atomizers (30 psi?). No reports on which regulator was used, so I also suspect not Atomic one...

Thanks

What do you mean it doesn't work with atomic diffuser?
What diffuser do you have - inline or in tank?
Did you provide 30psi for it (GLA inline diffuser requires 30psi).

Please provide more info.

Atomic CO2 Regulator V3 from GLA - any good?

Size vise it will be a perfect fit for me. I am thinking about coupling it with inline Atomic diffuser.

Any experience with Atomic CO2 Regulator V3 ?


Thanks
