I can't explain why, but I just seem to have this addiction to Eriocaulons (even though I've lost a bunch)! These weeds just amaze me and I can't seem to get enough of them.

What kinds of tanks do you have and what do you keep?

Aloha Charrr89,

LOL! No worries. Just an update. I had a catastrophic failure on my CO2 regulator. I was fortunate enough to get in touch with bettatail and purchased a dual stage CO2 regulator (single out put) to get me by while he was building my dual stage regulator and testing it. I was without CO2 for about a week and had some melt going on. When the single output came in, I had to re-adjust my timers so that the lights would come one in shifts and I would manually move the CO2 diffuser from tank to tank on a daily basis. You can imagine how relieved I was to get the dual out put regulator in!

Aloha Charrr89,

Sorry to hear bout your troubles with the CO2. Not sure if you know, but there's a hydroponics store in Kahala. They charge somewhere around $75 to lease a 20# cylinder of CO2. Once you turn in the cylinder, you get back something like $30. It's cheaper than I could re-fill an old tank! I hope that this helps! Also, your mailbox is full so I can't pm you!

Great to see the Hawaii area is still active! Been busy with life and a baby. Lol will start a build thread when my new 60x45x45 tank arrives in a week or so. I had no idea that store rented tanks, nice! I bought 2 5# tanks online awhile back $160 shipped here. Had I known I may have went that route.

Aloha Travis.808!

Good luck with your build! I'll look forward to checking the thread out! I think that there are a lot of us out there who found out about this a little too late. I figure if I keep putting it out there, it'll help someone save some money! I also bought a set up complete with tank (20# tank) and then found out that it needed to be hydrotested before they would fill. When I added everything up, I remembered hearing about that Kahala Hydroponics store (I had bought the CO2 set up and found out about this shop less than a week later!). It's cheaper for me to go this route!!!

Again, best of luck!
