so then the consensis is that the solenoid is better than leaving the CO2 on, based on what is best for the plants and fish? filling isn't really a problem, since we have a paintball shop just down the street and with the spare... so I guess the topic/question should have been more which is better, CO2 on for 24/7 or having it in sync with the lights... If it's better to turn it on and off, then I'm going to order that one from the last link

There is no absolute answer on this one. With 24/7 CO2 you have higher CO2 levels the second the light turns on, and more stable overall. With lights only CO2 your CO2 levels (and pH) will fluctuate more, but you'll use less CO2. You'll may also have less CO2 overnight as your CO2 production will be limited to fish and plants. And, no, pH shifts will not harm your fish.
