Anyone have any experience with glass garden set up for co2

http://www.glass-gardens.com/current_specials.htm

dad brought home a 25 lb co2 tank... little big but who cares the tanks downstairs

I want a external reactor(Sick of internal) and this one is only 30 bucks more so it's worth it to have see through....

Any problems with the set up?

I bought the Milwaukee regulator from them--no problems at all.

Do you really need/want an automated system? If you already have the cylinder then you need a needle valve and a regulator and a reactor and bubble counter. You could have all that for around $75 and have a nice manual CO2 system.

Pretty dubious title for this thread. Kind of misleading. Sounds like you are looking for people who have a problem with Glass Gardens, or that you are looking for people who have problems in addition to yours.

Would you care to change the thread title fishboy?

Well that exactly what I think he's trying to do. It will make sure that those who have had problems can find this thread and get the info out. It is beneficial to all of us. At the same time it is "so out there" that if no one replies with a complaint then the glass-gardens auto CO2 setup must be pretty good. Win-win the way I see it.

I have no problems with the post myself, it's a new product and certainly not a recognizable brand name. I would rather they ask questions first rather than make a purchase and find they aren't satisfied with it. I don't think there's any ulterior motive at all here the only thing I would ever ask of any customer, existing or potential is that they contact me with any problems first so I can resolve them, if they want to give me a negative review afterwards, then maybe I didn't do the right thing and look at it as a learning experience.

To be honest, I'm not sure if anyone on the forum has purchased the reactor yet.

Well, I changed the title. The word "issues" has too negative a connotation for my taste.
