C02 received

Man, I just received my Pressurized C02 system designed by Rex Grigg. Everything except the c02 tank and his DIY reactor which I already had been using with the old DIY C02.
Also, I don't have a controller which I still wonder if it's worth the money.
Does anybody care to comment?

Man I love it and I only just connected it up a couple hours ago. I've been using diy co2 for months now. But this system is great. I have a 29G and a 10G and I'm looking for a 120G to add to it. The 29 is in the living room, and the 10 in the dinning room. I explained this to Rex in terms of feet and he designed and put it together for me. All I had to do was drill a a hole into the floor right near the wall and through a few joists in the basement and pull the tubing through to the other tank and hook it up.

He does good work and a good job. You can find cheaper, but you can't find better for the money. Thank you Rex!

All you that don't have pressurized co2! don't worry, it will come when you are ready, if you really want it. I wanted it for maybe 7 or 8 months. Maybe more. But this is some really cool stuff. I love this hobby!!!

Hey, what kind of tubing are you running to reach the further tank? Do you think there are problems with leakage?

Hehe, I know what you mean, I did DIY for the longest time and switching to pressurized CO2 felt like such a luxury.

Regarding the controller, if you have super-soft water I would recommend a controller, otherwise you can pretty much go by the bubble count and find the perfect pH.

controllers are optional. I have very soft water and low pH and I just keep the CO2 on 24/7. It takes a little tweaking of bubble count and and surface movement to find the sweet spot but now i don't have to worry about sticky solenoids or out of calibration pH probes.

I don't think there are any leaks at all or if so they are minimal. The system is working great and now I have something else to play with. hehehehe
