    I just wanna see what others prefer in their bubble counter (JBJ) style? I use a mix of the both, but I noticed it has to be an exact mix. If you use all water the bubble count is different from when u have all glycerine could be wrong tho. It looks that way to me cuz water is a thinner...

    I'm trying to get started with pressurized CO2 and have purchased a five pound CO2 tank, a Premium Aquatek Regulator, and PINPOINT pH Controller. I am using the Aquatek bubble counter that came with the regulator and a Fluval Ceramic 88g-CO2 Diffuser. I have fiddled with the system for...

    There is a huge price difference. I have read reviews on both and not many complaints on either. I like that on the dual you can have the bubble counter attached right to it. I'm not opposed to spending $100 or so on a dual but is it really needed? & What size tank would you recommend for a...

    Hi, I've recently purchased and setup my pressurised CO2 system. Everything seems to be working well except 1 issue. When the Solenoid starts (based on timer) it appears make a click sound and then fire a small burst of CO2 through the tubing which is emptying the Bubble Counter. To better...

    I just got a Aquatek Co2 regulator with solenoid. How do I read the gauge and what to look for? Another thing is that since my bubble counter is horizontal I can't count the bubbles unless I lay my tank down making the bubble counter vertical. Is it ok to lay the Co2 tank down instead of...

    I just made a simple DIY glass jar bubble counter and have a few questions. I sealed up around where the CO2 lines go in and out (both sides) of the lid. I hear people talking about how air leaks are common with these things. Do I need to add caulking to the lid to get a good seal, or will my...

    Hello everyone! I've been doing a low light set up for a while in a 10 gallon, but of course with everything in aquariums, all the small stuff is just a gateway to wanting to do more on a larger scale :tongue: I've acquired a 29 gallon tank from a friend, and I've upgraded the lighting fixture...

    So I have a lovely Biocube (14G) that I adore for its super lighting and filter. Only problem is that I've recently moved home from college and suddenly my tank has gone from no algae at all to BBA all over the leaves of my plants. Yuck! So currently I've got the lights completely off to put the...

    So I got really tired of staring at my large bubble counters next to my fish tank and decided to start a DIY bubble counter project that attached directly to the two liter bottles. This is how my old one looked Anyway, here is a list of things needed for the project. I just found...
