Diy Co2

Hi guys again still working on the new Tank..
Should be up and PLanted and hopefully Fished by Wed.. Wow what a hard thing to do in three hours, maybe fri. dont know yet..
I am going to stick with the DIY co2 for a while until i can get enough money up and research to spurlge on the Pres. co2..
I am thinking of running the co2 to a water pump / circulator..
It has a place for an aeration tube to push 0xy. into the tank..
Now what i am wondering is should i use the aeration hole for co2? or just run it through the intake tube of the pump..

I understand if i do this, it will force the co2 into the water, but is that the most effecient way like this..

also i set up my Ehiem today!! :Slobber: what took me so long?? ahah..

If you've got an Eheim, you can just feed the CO2 line into Eheim's intake. Some people claim to have great deal of success doing this way. Read the guy who mentioned 15 bbm.Regards,

...or you could put a Rex DIY reactor inline with the output tube of your new Eheim and get great efficiency.
