Default Twinstar REVIEW

We have our hands on the twinstar running on week 4 at the moment.

Its a pretty cool gadget and there's definitely benefits to tanks new and established.

Stay Tuned!

Are you able to test the electrical current in the water produced by the twinstar? I wonder if it is uncomfortable or harmful long term to fish and shrimp.

Awesome! I read about the electrical current when I first saw the twinstar a while back. I believe it is supposedly similar to the amount of current produced by the Carbo Plus co2 generators.

Hi Brucef, sorry the inconvenience as the content was posted on a separate site. Let me see to post it on our own site, theaquaticplantsociety.org and here.

Strungout, i am currently using the device in a QT tank after receiving a new shipment of fish. Its certainly useful in this regard. As of two nights ago, i decided to switch it over to a massively algae affected tank just to see how it will impact the tank. there is some clearing effect already but its still to soon to tell.
