I currently have a 37 gallon reef and a 75 gallon fw tank.
after spending lots on the reef u want to keep the fw inexpensive.
my main goal in the 75 is fish mostly 8 cardinals, 6 angels, 2 clown loach a few ottos and 6-8 lyretail swords.
im currently running a 2 24" bulb flourescent ficture and a coralife 35 inch 2x t5 for planted tanks light. i have maintain w/some algae val, crypt wendetti and amazon swords.

I plan on upgrading the coralife 36 to the 4 foot model and wanted an inexpensive co2 kit, i notice theres one called co2 pro system a nd the carbo block both sold by dr foster and smith....any recommendations, i just want some good healthy plant w/my fish...im not trying to have an "amano tank"...thanks

put together a custom setup rather than the one on dfs as the parts will be better quality. i have a 75 gallon with an azoo regulator and some clippar needle valves with a rhinox 5000 and a powerhead above

The Carbo-Plus is almost as expensive to setup as a pressurized system. And much more expensive to operate in the long run.

A DIY yeast based system will cause you more problems than you can even start to imagine.

Do you have a calcium reactor or plan on having one for the reef?
