|ADJAquariums||Ok, With the reactor setup, what is probably the best design you guys/gals have seen/used? i want something that i can build but im not truely adverse to purchasing one i guess, If i want to do it right it could come down to that. Im not the biggest fan of the soda bottles due to aesthetic reasons but i cuess i can somehow hide it, possibly within my stand|

DIY CO2 questions
ISTA reactors are cheap and work really well IMO. You may have to change the tubing on the fluval if you are using the black stuff they come with.

For a reactor, it is best to put it on the filter return side, so that detritus does not accumulate within the reactor.

|Darkblade48||If you don't mind the additional cost, go for a canister. It will be quieter, and with an adjustable filter return, you won't have to worry about CO2 off gassing as much.|

I'm Back! with more questions too... I FINALLY have time to do what i want with my tank, so i'm thinking about actually doing CO2 right now, i have checked with my local chinese place and they said i Have to be in store to get the chopsticks and they wont do it on delievery, i have no clue why.
I can do an HOB setup, i could do a canister setup, what do you guys think would be the best here? im interested in doing the HOB setup but im not adversed to any ideas you guys/gals have.

|Sugardaddy1979||That would work. Or you could just hook it to a ceramic diffuser or a limewood airstone,|
