A friend has a regulator that he use to use on his reef tank that he said I can have. Is a regulator that is used for a reef tank the same? or can it be adapted to a planted. If yes what is different or needed to be converted? Totally clueless about regulators-I am doing some research since I need to purchase one in the near future.:confused:

Yes. The regulators used on reef tanks are used for calcium reactors. They use CO2 to lower the pH and dissolve aragonite. They use the same CO2 bottles.

Is good. just need the extra hardware regulator on. the tank and regulator are essentially the same. just make sure if there is a silenoid or not. most likley should be.
