Nice work on the alu fixture! Curious to see where this one goes!
Hey, thanks! The solenoids are NC and can handle 125 psi so more than enough! Path of least resistance should ensure gas only goes into the reactors anyway. My only worry, as I haven't yet tried this out in real life, is will the bubble counters fill easily and consistently enough, and will the level of the fert solution in the bottles have any effect on that? I know the gas in the lines will easily compress and make room for the liquid, I'm just not sure exactly how much they'll fill and/or overfill into the lines after the counters. There will still be check valves between the reactors and the counters, so hopefully their resistance will be enough to stop the flow at the right point too. I'm just going to use a cheap 15 min timer to start but if I have to I'll get a fancier digital that I can dial in by the min or second.what an interesting way to do autodosing! I would have never thought of feeding them straight into the reactor! doing it this way would prevent any back pressure from reaching the ferts. do the solenoid stand up to the co2 pressure?
Yes, beautiful tank build! and very nice stand, I like the color
Extremely happy. Glass is beautiful, silicone work's very clean. Only gripe: the mat's pretty thin and dense. Probably great for a professionally manufactured stand, but for my DIY one w/ all its irregularities, I'd prefer something a little thicker and spongier. I may end up just swapping it out.How do you like the build quality and clarity of your WB tank? My 4820 should be here in a few weeks. Really looking forward to more space for the fish to school...
Nice. I really like the magnetic tool holder. Headed toward the legendary online retailer now!Let there be light!
I also added a little pull out shelf for holding things during maintenance:
