That depends on whether you’re going to do high light, co2 and ferts, or whether it’s gonna be low tech/light.

In addition to what bettatail said, if you also installed a new CGA320 nut and nipple, where it connects to the regulator body may also leak.

The fx5 has a flow of 607 gph if I'm not mistaken, I don't think they sell a pre-built reactor that can diffuse co2 in that much flow. Even a large cerges 20" water filter housing may not be big...

Depth is not a problem for co2, but it might be for lighting as PAR exponentially drops off the deeper you go, and a 24” can be a challenge. Make sure you check the PAR data on any light fixture. Aim...

As mentioned, you want a steady working pressure for aquarium use and adjusting the WP up and down will cause havoc on your tank. But you might be able to split the feed and have two needle valves,...

I’ve tried ID of 1/16" and found it to be too tight to fit check valves and the needle valve nipples. I now use 1/8"ID by 1/4"OD with a wall thickness of 1/16" of polyurethane (not silicone).

Four T5HOs might be your best bet. A friend of mine did a single BML on a 90g, at about 24" away from the substrate, and all he could manage was low light. He later had to add two T5HO bulbs (along...

I’d suggest getting more than one canister filter because you’ll need it for the hearters, co2 and uv if you choose to go with uv. It’s not a necessity but a good a idea. And having two canisters is...

If you used a 4ºdKH solution, then green is good, yellow is too much, and blue is insufficient co2. Personally I aim for more than 20ppm, more like 30-40ppm, which is still safe.

Could it be the digital display that's failing, and it's really 7.7 but looks like 1.7??? Otherwise I would reset the whole thing and start over.
