well after some thought i have decided to go pressurized since i am lazy and dont like mixing the diy every month actually less than a month but have some questions before i spend the bucks.
i have read almost all the threads found in a search for pressurized, co2 and regulators but still have some questions. i have kinda found all of what i plan on purchasing but wanted to know what everyone thought about the parts and any feedback from users.
what i am looking at right now is the kit offered from aquariumplants.com hereCOMPLETE ULTIMATE Co2 SYSTEM (best of the best)($500+ VALUE ! )
this is what it consist of SYSTEM CONSISTS OF:
-Regulator (AQUARIUMPLANTS.com's own)
-Milwaukee monitor/controller (SMS122):
-Reactor 200 (with Rio pump):
-10' Co2 resistant tubing:
-Heavy duty 3 prong (grounded) timer:
-1 bottle 4.01 calibration solution:
-1 bottle 7.01 calibration solution:
i am mainly intrested in the regulator and would like to know of any problems or if its a good item.
this is for a 20 gallon high that is somewhat heavily planted or at least it will be and ~4.8wpg for about 8hrs a day. dosing seachem products per dosage chart provided by seachem. right now im getting about 24ppm from my diy but i would still like to go pressurized.
also, i have one of these 8spiral and nano diffuser from aquaticmagic that i would like to use instead of the reactor provided since im a bit limited on space and the reactor looks as though it mounts insided the tank. anyone have one of these diffusers? what do yall think about it? i tried it on my diy but it didnt build enough pressure to fizzle.
approximately how long would a 2.5lb bottle last on my tank?
thanks for any help or input.
