6. The filter comes with a flow nozzle. Put the sponge removed in step 3 over this nozzle.
7. Attach the flow nozzle to the filter.


Does anyone have a picture of those steps?

Probably noone will take a picture of these steps.

But they are very simple:

Imagine that in front of you you have 3 things:
1. The pump
2. Plastic pipe about 3/4" long
3. A sponge with a hole in the middle

Insert the pipe in the hole of the sponge. Now you have a sponge with a piece of pipe sticking out of it.

Now insert the pipe in the pump (where the water comes out). Now you have a pump with a sponge attached to it.

Done.

God, i just read every single page and post on this threat. Quit interesting stuff.

However, I am guessing it isn't the safest thing to use if you are a complete n00b like me with fish in 12 gallon tank with plants as well.

Unless of course I am seeing things the wrong way here

its just as safe as other methods for injecting CO2.
Start with a low bubble rate and watch the fish closely for signs of discomfort.
if they are gasping at the surface, seem otherwise agitated then back off on the gas.

this is a very efficient and inexpensive way to inject CO2 in a small aquarium.

Just got the only one left.
Can someone repost the original pics, they seem to be gone now.
Thanks!

I thought I might have trouble setting it up without pictures but it's a really simple process and you'll have no problem if you just follow the written instructions. It only takes a couple of minutes to put it together. I'm about to go out and purchase a second one today which will completely uglify my ADA tank but it works so well, I don't care anymore.
