130 Gallon High Tech Under Construction
Let me save you the frustration, DO NOT order that CO2 reactor. I made that mistake and returned it within a week. Whoever it was I was arguing with at NilocG admitted it cant handle the 4bps I was running through it for a 60 gallon. My question to him was why isnt that fact spelled out in the product listing?
You are going to need a lot more than 4bps for your 130 gallon.
A better option is a tall Griggs reactor or a Cerges made with a 20" water filter housing.

There's lots of experience building reactors on here, and I'm sure many of us would be happy to geek out on a reactor build with you (me included!).
Thanks for the heads up! I had been looking at doing a DIY reactor with the 20" filter housings. That or doing a DIY one from PVC and acrylic tube (for visuals, could use PVC tube) that would function like the 20" filter housing style reactor would. The only point to the DIY one over just buying a filter housing would be to save money.....
Would a single 20" filter housing be enough to dissolve the CO2 needed? Or will I need to run several chained together? CO2 injection is new to me so I don't have a good enough reference frame to design one based on "that look about right" designing
