Paintball co2 system help?
Hello there everyone! Just signed up here for a change of pace from Tropical fish forums. I plan on doing a somewhat high tech planted tank with my 20 gallon tall tank. I allready know what lighting and substrate im going to use, but I am still trying to find a cheaper-ish way of putting co2 into my tank. I have recently just heard of using paintball parts to inject co2 into tanks and have read the post about it here on the planted tank forums. I am a bit confused however on what exact parts are needed and wonder if someone could specifically point out exact names of the parts that are needed to make a fully functonal paintball co2 system.
Obviously the main parts needed are the co2 hosing, some sort of regulator with pressure gauge, the actual canister itself, bubble counter?, I would like to know if theres a part that allows you to plug into a timer so the co2 goes on and off with the light (solenoid valve), and also a diffuser (im pretty sure you just find one on ebay etc)
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
