From experience, what is your favorite way of supplying CO2 to a planted tank:

1) CO2 Reactor. What do you use to drive the reactor?
2) CO2 Diffuser
3) Use both reactor and diffuser at the same time.

whooo wow ,depends.Reactor is "thorough" and yet diffusor may be easy'r to keep and/or clean.I run a reactor and it needs to be cleaned every 2 weeks to maintain flow through it.:icon_roll


That's really strange. I have a couple of reactors that have been running for a couple of years each and I have never cleaned them.

I have never cleaned any of my reactors. None have bioballs inside at the present and of course are on the filter's outflow. No flow probs.

I tried using a diffuser and a reactor off of a two way manifold, but the differences in pressure of the two devices (well this is a guess of the cause) made for weird bubble rates in the bubble counters on every start up. So I'm eventually going to use two reactors on a 90 gallon and a future 120 or 180 gallon. I have just got to get around to making the other reactor.
