Fluval 88g Co2 Kit for 10Gal Tank

Hi Friends,

Im a new member here and i have a 10g planted tank . Im planning to use the Fluval 88g Co2 Kit . Would anyone be able to tell me how long will the canister last if im going to run it at 1bubble/3 seconds for 8 hours a day?

I would also appreciate if the experts here could take a look at my tanks pics and give me some feedback on how it looks and how it could be made better.

Thanks :-)

I use a 88g at 1 bubble a second and it jsut ran out. Run 8hrs a day and took about 4.5 weeks to drain. Becareful tho they drain VERY fast. One day the reeading will be normal, the next day it will be half and only last a couple days more. Saying this because as we speak, I am out and waiting on amazon to hurry up and SHIP my order from last week

I just looked. I don't think it matters that they're pressurized, it's just Amazon doesn't have the 3 pack in stock. The single one is in stock and available to me for 2 day shipping.

Edit. It is available and for 2 day shipping. http://www.amazon.com/Fluval-20g-CO2-Disposable-Cartridges-3-Pack/dp/B004G46QQI/ref=pd_sim_sbs_petsupplies_8?ie=UTF8&refRID=1A4RRHTKFMWABHH5QB7K Make sure to go to "More offers" and select the one sold by Amazon. Items that are selling for cheaper than Amazon offers usually get the front page and you have to go digging for the Amazon offer. Just realized that's the 20g, the 88g is out of stock.

Yeah so this is what Amazon CS said to me if anyone else ever finds themself in the same place:

"As I look on to the order and tried to change shipping the system will not allow me, since the item is tagged as hazmat, Some items listed on our site may only be shipped via Standard U.S. shipping or No-Rush Shipping. Your Fluval 88g-CO2 Disposable Cartridges listed as containing hazardous material. Amazon Prime members still receive free shipping on these items if they're designated as eligible for Amazon Prime. However, we're unable to ship them via expedited shipping methods."

That's very interesting because no where on the page does it say that. If I add them to my cart it says Guarantee 2 day shipping, have item by XX Date.

Thatpetplace.com usually has the best prices on pet supplies and if you order over $89 it's free shipping. Not as fast as prime but not too slow either. You could always cancel that order too.

So does DR fosters and Smith, I have always had good relations with them, so looks like they will be getting the majority of my business. Just ordered from them.


BTW Thanks a TON for helping me get this sorted out. Appreciate it
