Sorry fella but I must disagree. It costs me about 13 pence a day for my 450l tank. I suspect it would cost more in gas alone it I used compressed CO2. Happy to be corrected if I'm wrong.

If you dislike messing with CO2 injection you might want to try liquid carbon, such as Easy Life. Its suitable for most plants plus has an anti algae effect. Cheaper too.

IMO Eheim wins hands down every time. They work for a start. They are far cheaper to run. They requite less servicing. They are VERY well made and will last for longer. No contest, get a Eheim.

Any advice as to the how? I'm not squeamish but I don't want to be the cause of any unnecessary stress to the fish.
