| | DIY CO2 reactor.
I jut built a DIY Reactor. I was testing it with Air from an air pump. I got the the flow down to 1 BPS. I hooked every thing up and I couldnt get the bubbles to dissolve. I did get a mist that flowed out of the tube. I havent added a burp tube yet. I will if I need to.
Here is what I used.
Aqua Clear 30 Powerhead, Reated at 175 GPH
Gravel Vacuum Tube, about 6" long and 1 1/2" wide
Air tubeing as needed.
Here is a photo:
I have removed the Foam and the air stone. I really need to get a photo of it action I guess.
The reasons that it didnt work that I thought of was:
1: I dont have a strong enough Power head.
2: O2 wont disslove like CO2 Dose.
Thanks for any help that I can get.
