    I have the “Pollen style” bubble counter/diffuser and just set it up today. It was a pain to fill it with water, for starters. The issue is that I cannot set my CO2 past 20psi or else the bubbles become violent and too large, as if you had just an air hose without an air stone on it. I’m not...

    Just installed a new needle valve as the one on the regulator is terrible. I'm noticing some strange behaviour in terms of bubble count. It seems like the bubbles are running normally, then it runs very fast, and then very slowly, and then it returns back to normal. This cycle happens regularly...

    I just got a pressurised CO2 system with drop checker and in-tank ceramic diffuser. The tank is 30L/8Gallons so bubble count should be tiny I'm assuming. What should I be aiming for? One website said 0.3bps and another said 6 bubbles per minute. 1 bubble per second per 10 gallons? There is so...
