Since I plan on building a 1000L (264 gal) planted tank which will need co2.
I'm considering a grigg style reactor which cannot be taller than 26 inches including bends etc for the plumbing.
it will be powered by a jebao dcs7000 which will provide a max flow of about 1800GPH, I plan on running it at 528~1000GPH.
so in order to reduce the flow enough in the reactor and to increase dwell-time I'm planning on making it 4.3 inches wide inlet and outlet will be around 1.5 inches.
will something like this set-up work?
If there is more co2 required than the reactor can process I can build a second reactor since there will be 2 pumps running in the sump.
I've already come to the conclusion that bigger is better and the slower the water moves the better the co2 gets dissolved.
that is why I'm planning on making it pretty wide.
the widest I can go is about 5 inches after that there are no unions etc. available to hook everything up.
