    Looking for a quality CO2 setup: dual stage reg, metering valve, solenoid, check valves, bubble counter & diffuser (optional). Or some combination of the items so I can piece it together. I would like to use this setup on a nano tank (5-10gal) for the time being before upgrading to a larger...

    Hello, I have mini pressurized CO2 tank hooked up to a glass diffuser with a needle valve on the tank its self and a smaller plastic screw valve hooked up to the airline tubing. I've been reading around and I've seen many people also using a reactor? I'm not sure what purpose it serves, and if...

  4. Planted Nano Tanks
    Hello, After a break from aquariums for about a year I got the itch and decided to invest in a 2.6 gallon nano cube due to space constraints in my apartment. I have done the planted thing once before but never with CO2. I am waiting on my new Aquatop LED light to come in...

    Hi All I'm new around here so just thought I'd introduce myself and ask some, probably dumb, questions! So, I've always kept fish as a kid, with the aid of my Mother. For as long as I can remember we'd have huge tanks filled with tropical fish, and smaller tanks for breeding livebearers in...

    I've got a handful of items I'd like to sell as a complete lot (good for someone getting started in the hobby or with multiple tanks). There are four porcelain base ZooMed clamp lamps - I have two clamps, you can also attach these to a stand or hanging fixture. These are really good for...

    I am having trouble getting my regulator to work again. It is a Milwaukee regulator, standard one I've seen most people use. I have had it about a year, but it hasn't been in use for more than 4 months. I got everything set up properly and have followed the instructions to a T on this thread...

    First of all I want to say that I’m new to this forum. I became a member of the planted tank to share my following idea with you. Needle valves or solenoid valves in combination with a time switch are often used to automatically turn of CO2 at night. I came up with an alternative idea to do...

    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 am preparing to embark on converting my fishroom (2x55G, 2x29G, 4x20G, 2x33G, 6x10G) and display room (300G, 220G, 150G, 90G) to central filtration - I keep all SA fish, and plant the heck out of everything. My question is, assuming I can keep the water system air-tight (going to be filtering...

  16. WTB/RAOK
    Hi I'm new to the hobby and am interested in adding pressurized CO2 to my tanks. I am not very familiar with all the bells and whistles so I will have lots of questions. I don't think that I need the tank as I can pick one up at my lfs. I would like one for my 20 gallon and/or 29 gallon. Please...

    I'm currently running a GLA paintball regulator on 20oz tanks to supply CO2 to my 7gal and 12 gal. I would like to upgrade to a 5# or 10# tank to supply my 60gal as well, but I wasn't really looking to have to purchase or build a new regulator setup. I know there are adapters to connect a...

    I'm asking because I'm looking to make a purchase. The local pet shop is selling some and I'm very curious. I have a 30 gallon tank currently. It's a dirt tank and to be honest my hopes are to say that my plants "grow like crazy" and I'm hoping to find this with CO2 and other good stuff of course.
