    Ok, so I want to set up a pressurized co2 system for my 125 gal tank, and i have a couple questions about gear. I already searched a bunch of articles and also threads on this forum so that i don't as a question that has been answered a bunch of times. Im sure my questions have already been...

    I had previously used a small powerhead xilong 3W filter as a CO2 diffuser, with DIY CO2. Now I have set up pressurised CO2 setup in my 29gal tank, should I use a powerhead as a CO2 diffuser?

    Hello, So today i set up my very first co2 system just to try it out. It's been in the tank for +- 3 hours now but the diffuser isn't "misting" but the bubbles seem to come out of the side of the white part. Does it have to soak for a while for it to work? Is this normal with a new diffuser...

    One thing to note when first setting up a brand new inline diffuser is this... It is absolutely normal to find your new diffuser producing some large bubbles. This is a natural process our ceramic membrane goes through unitil all the pores on the membrane are open. This whole process may take...

    Hello everyone, After scouring the web for some CO2 system troubleshooting pages I have come up short with my issue, and I was hoping someone could help! I recently set up a 10 gallon hex shrimp tank to run off of the same CO2 system my 30 gallon heavily planted tank runs off of. I have a 20...

    Hi - just installed my co2 regulator/tank/diffuser. I got the pro-se kit with bazooka diffuser from co2 art, for reference. I'll get to it - by the time the pressure builds up in the co2 tube (from bubble counter on regulator to diffuser in tank) my ability to control the bps dramatically...

    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...

    My airstone has stopped working for my 5 gallon so I need to get a new one. As I was looking up new airstones on Amazon, I realized most require a higher wattage of pump. I have a Tetra Whisper 10 air pump (1.5 W) that is still putting out air, but not enough for my small Imagitarium bubbling...

    First time posting first time planted tank start up. So completely new setup, I went with a GLA Pro advance system with their Atomic inline diffuser. To date I have not messed with the Ph controller as I wanted to learn how to set up up manually using a drop checker and bubble counter. The...

    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...

    I'm looking to set up a CO2 system using sodastream bottles (It seems like a good medium between disposable systems and full size systems). Do I need a dual stage regulator to prevent end of tank dump? Single stage ones are much cheaper and was wondering if I could get away with using one but...

    I have a premium aquatek regulator on a 5# tank diffusing into a 75 gallon tank via a ceramic diffuser. I'm starting to get really frustrated with the whole set up. I just got the tank filled a month ago (psi reaches about 1000 when full). I try to run my working pressure at 60 psi and ~6 bbs...

    I have a paintball co2 setup on my 20 gallon tank with an inline diffuser. I have decided that I am tired of all the bubbles so its time to go get a CO2 reactor. Does anyone have any recommendations on what CO2 reactor works for them that doesn't take up a ton of space? I don't have much room...

    I'm having trouble wrapping my head around this one. I have an Aquatop CF500UV canister filter on order, upgrading from my SunSun HW302... I've read that the hose size for this CF500 is .75"ID / 1"OD (although I'm not 100% certain of this)... I want to add an inline diffuser however the largest...

    I use two diffusers in my aquarium, one for my CO2 and another instead of an air stone for my air pump. I am thinking about using a couple of check-valves and a splitter to hook both my CO2 and air pump to 1 diffuser. I'm wondering if anyone else has done this, and what sort of results they got...

    Hello good people of tpt.net! I've been lurking around for couple of months to get any kind of experience that you generously share before I set up my amateur tank. Now I need your help once again to make my SERA reactor work properly. My tank is 300 lt. (80 gallons approx.) while the net...
