Wow that's awesome!!!!
So which mean all I need for CO2 setup is Azoo regulator c/w selenoid, CO2 cylinder, bubble counter, wall timer, ........ that's it right??

Then connect the tube to Ehmieh Filter Canister...... the canister I only saw 2 opening, 1 in & 1 out. So how do I plug the CO2m tube in??

Can anyone answer me this and my previous post.

Does Eheim Ecco 2234 is enough for my new 194L tank??
Oh and er....... it has its' own pump (internal suction pump???) right??? In order to suck & pump ou the water???

What will happen if I get a filter exceeded the tank requirement..eg 194L tank I take a 250L filter....wil that cause any problem???

Oh and what is the heater for anyway?? To warm up the tank?? or Any particular reason........??? Coz Ehiem Professional 2324 comes built in heater.

How the CO2 supplies later on connect to these filter??? In order to have perfect fuse with water and CO2.

Thanks

Medowance,

According to Eheim's website http://www.eheim.com/index2.html the 2234 should be enough for your tank size. If you are not familiar with Eheim's I recommend you read through their website to get some info on them.

Yes, you would only have to buy filter material for the filter.

No. In fact, it would probably be better to have a filter which is rated at somewhat higher than the tank which it will be filtering.

Yes, for the wintertime when your temps at home get colder. Of course, if you live somewhere where it doesn't get cold, you don't need this.

Some folks feed the CO2 directly into their Eheims, not using one, I can't guide you here. However, you can build a simple diy reactor to dissolve the CO2, see here: https://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/f...tor-plans.html.

Talking

Ic thanks for the info.

So basically like my country, there's no point using a filter wit a heater.

Btw thanks for all your support throughout this time.

I'll try a way how to connect the CO2 to the Ehiem then I'll post it here for everyone.

Thanks again
