I don't hear much noise on mine. When it hits a large bubble you'll hear a swooshing sound ocassioanlly. Most of the bubbles that come off the glass diffuser or sweetwater airstone are pretty "misty" and usually don't make much noise when they hit the filter's impeller.Ok thanks yes I read that and think I will try just disolving it via my intake tube, that doesn't make a lot of noise does it?
I was wondering when you make the bubble counter how does it measure the bubbles?
For DIY CO2, I wouldn't be concerned about injecting to much CO2. But if you do see fish gasping then that's a sign that there is either not enough dissolved oxygen, or there is too much dissolved CO2 in the water. As for pH, just make sure it doesn't go too low...say below 6.0.i don't have a KH test kit and since it's DIY I don't have to worry too much about overdosing right? just need to monitor ph and fish gasping for breath.
The Hagen ladder works very well, but is large and unsightly at times. Works best in 20 gallons or less.It [the website] talks about the diffuser made with a powerhead and a siphon.. how would you compare it to the other diffusers mentioned?
namely, the hagen ladder, nano diffuser, the spiral one in the video, and the Spio VIII Co2 diffuser (which looks like a combination of the spiral one and a nano diffuser).
Hi Ravi,1) How do i connect the outlet to the filter that I use(picture attached) so that the filter outlet releases the CO2 in the tank using a diffuser.
2) How do I control the flow of CO2 and how many bubbles per second/minute need to be allowed.
3) Does the CO2 flow need to be stopped during the night when the lights are off,if yes how do I do it.
