    Hey everyone, first post here. I'm looking to add CO2 to my 5.5 gallon Fluval Chi tank, and move it over to an 11.3 gallon cube when it's time to upgrade. I've done a fair bit of research, and I'm having trouble deciding between regulators. Cost isn't a huge concern, but I obviously want to save...

    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...

    A while back while browsing the forum, I came across a few comments that suggested our regulators were not genuinely Dual Stage due to the shape of the regulator body. Our regulators are very much dual stage. There are many regulators available to aquascapers today and many claim to be dual...

    So I did search the forum and all of the thread that came up on the first 5 pages were at least 2+ years old. I'm planning on starting a high tech after years of low and I'm curious what the current best most reliable regulator is? I realize that is a subjective question but I'm willing to...

    I've been researching for hours trying to get all this straight. I'm trying to work out a budget dual stage CO2 setup, but I'm a bit overwhelmed by all the options. Here's my current understanding: In the case of regulators made for aquariums, like this GLA model, the term "regulator" is used...

    I've had the aquarium CO2 regulator pictured below for about a month now. Everything was working fine until then. One day, the solenoid started to make a buzzing noise and no CO2 was getting into the tank but upon further investigation, the solenoid is clicking and working normally when there is...

    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...
