Nutrafin natural co2 set up.... Any good?

Has anyone used the nutrafin natural co2 set up

I have a 200 litre tank and don't know where to start with co2!

I did give the 2 litre cider bottle DIY a go but my seals weren't great and ended up leaking and not enough pressure would build up

I was looking into the sodastream set up but even that's still quite costly especially compared to the DIY or the natural kit

Has anyone used this kit and would it even benefit my tank with it being 200 litres?

I would not recommend you try DIY CO2 with an aquarium as large as yours. It will be quite ineffective unless you have multiple bottles rigged up.

I would suggest that you invest into a pressurized CO2 system (for more information, please take a look at my Primer to Pressurized CO2, linked in my signature below).
