What controller are you using that is F based? I have a MH1210 (F) but it is single stage only compared to the dual stage STC-1000 (C). I've not found an inexpensive dual stage F based controller...

Looking for a saltwater tank forums as good as ours?

I've got a 29 gallon tank in the garage tempting me to fire up a saltwater tank. I've never done a saltwater, just thought I might sneak it by the wife if she gets to pick some new pretty fish :)

I run a Rex Grigg on a 180 with no problems - make the PVC piece a bit longer as he suggest for higher bps. It's one of the most efficient style reactors out there as far as I know.

Don't forget that the tank will show the same pressure reading of 800-1000 until it starts to run out of liquid co2 - then the meter will drop off fairly quickly (probably still a few days/week at...

I realize this is very old - but in case someone else finds this like I did with Google - it's incorrect. I have a 300w for 5/8 hose that is red.

How much of a temperature variance would you need to see that dramatic of a chance? Or do you have tanks in unheated rooms?

Ahh your diffuser. Good call, I didn't notice that. I've read some of them require a minimum psi - I don't have to worry about that as I use a Rex grigg inline diffuser.

That's my understanding - and lowering your working pressure to 10 and readjusting your needle valve to give you 2 bps at that rate should help keep it from happening sooner (as the ratio of...

Do you use a fairly low bubble count? It's my understanding that people who have never experienced a EOTD w/ a single stage regulator are fairly passive on their CO2 usage. For example using 2-3 bps...
