Size vise it will be a perfect fit for me. I am thinking about coupling it with inline Atomic diffuser.

Any experience with Atomic CO2 Regulator V3 ?


Thanks

well so far I like it but it doesn't work with the atomic diffuser. I'm going to try cleaning mine and see if that makes a difference. It can make very fine adjustments.
What do you mean it doesn't work with atomic diffuser?
What diffuser do you have - inline or in tank?
Did you provide 30psi for it (GLA inline diffuser requires 30psi).

Please provide more info.

This definitely is not true. Im not sure what is wrong with your's but i have mine set up on the atomic diffuser inline with one of my eheim eccos. Been running strong for about 6 months now with no issues

Do you turn off CO2 at night? I found some (old kind of) reports that folks had issues next day after night shut off with presure dropping and the rate of drops in bubble counter was going down. I suspect not enough pressure from the regulator to support atomizers (30 psi?). No reports on which regulator was used, so I also suspect not Atomic one...

Thanks

Mine works fine with their inline diffuser. So far my only complaint is that the single gauge is for working pressure rather then tank pressure. Working pressure is preset and not adjustable (so knowing it is useless) and it would be nice to see when the tank was about to run out.

Good to know, thanks!

I think this regulator is great. Fixed pressure like stated above is the only drawback besides no bubble counter. Size is nice, it'll power a atomic diffuser just fine, and no end of tank dump(I believe). Mounts with just the twist of your hand, I had to use permaseal ring because of my co2 cylinder though. Fine turn needle valve with very little adjustment in turning
Picture for those who want to see it:

What kind of tubing is that (black)?
