Co2 set up is giving me a headache
Hi everyone, I love fish and have had many tanks over many years.
I have never wanted a planted tank but ....... I started with some small plants and my wife loves the plants and based on that she is letting me set up a co2 system (and then another tank) so I started using a can that you push the button and fill a canister in the tank but drop checker is blue so not enough co2 in the tank. I started looking into pressurised systems. I don't have a massive amount of room so I'm getting a sodastream gas bottle. I have a inline diffuser and I'm waiting for my gauge with solenoid and bubble counter to come. This is where I'm confussed what do i need to connect the gauge to the bottle somewhere I read that I needed a permaseal? On top of that what hose do I need and where can I get it? I'm a wheelchair user so find it really hard to go to store and ask there. The one day I felt up to it the lad who uses co2 pressurised systems was on a day off which is just my luck lol. So what this massive post boils down to is:
What do I need to connect a regulator gauge to a soda stream bottle? And
What hose do I need to run from the bubble counter to the defuse? And
Where do I buy it?
Please and thank you
