Question

Atomic CO2 Regulator V3 Reviews?


I am looking for a simple small regulator for a 5lb tank that is not too expensive or too cheap. The Atomic CO2 Regulator V3 may fit the bill. Anyone out there have any experience with it that you would like to share? Pros and cons? Thanks!

That is what I'm using (including a 5lb tank) on my little 16gal aquarium. It has been working well so far (3 months). The big thing I learned during setup was not to ignore the part about using a little oil to lube the tube you insert. If you don't, there will be a leak and it will refuse to jam all the way in otherwise. With that solved, my co2 rate has been steady and solid.

Thanks! What diffuser and bubble counter did you end up using?

I was actually about to post a similar question ... Glad someone beat me to it.

Also wanted to know the pros/cons of the atomic regulator vs GLA's basic regulator with bubble counter (other than the aesthetic/size and a $20 savings ... But with no bubble counter).
