Finally went pressurized Co2!


Just put in a GLA V2 on my 36 gallon, wanted to share!


All the pieces, two 24 oz PB tanks from Amazon, all the rest from GLA



all hooked up


topside - bubble counter is on the back of the tank now. All of this is pretty hidden from the front by that big Anubias


Here is the "Pearl" drop checker, I add this here because it is pretty and it might help someone else. I was trying to decide between this and the "Nano" (which sounds truly tiny, 3x3cm) and had a hard time finding a picture with something in it for scale (Didn't want something huge). All the stock photos are on a white background with nothing for reference.

Nice. Please share the BPS count vs CO2 level when its stabilized for a few days.

It is best to position the drop checker on the other side of the tank and not too close to the atomic diffuser...just a more accurate reading.

How long do you think that tank will last on the 36 gallon. I've been looking at the same set up, but not sure how long it would last on my 29g.

I was thinking about that, and you just made the decision easy, thanks!
