    Larry's Glade

    Another summer, another rescape. Maybe another name. Kinda looks like an ent. An elephant ent. 2016-07-17 13.15.48 by hotweldfire, on Flickr 2016-07-17 13.16.00 by hotweldfire, on Flickr

    Fluval 88g pressure level

    Well, that's a fair point. I have seen a few debates on here on that issue and have gone away with the view that this is a risky thing to do. I would be happy to hear other views on this. I am tempted to give it a go.

    Stumpy filter?

    Thanks for the replies. DavidW: do you mean using two sets of inlets/outlets? I'm afraid the tank is too small for that. Or do you mean using some kind of splitter to combine the flow of the two filters. Vador: I think I would have the same problem with that filter I'm afraid. I believe they...

    Stumpy filter?

    Hi All, Got a rather specific requirement. Because of space/aesthetic limitations I need a filter to run a 30cm cube that a) has to sit underneath the tank and b) has to sit on a shelf 27cm high with a bunch of books in front of it too (see below). 2016-07-14 09.24.53 by hotweldfire, on Flickr...

    Fluval 88g pressure level

    Thanks for the response. The space is extremely limited - 27cm to be precise. Do you know if a sodastream will fit? 2016-07-14 09.24.53 by hotweldfire, on Flickr Same issue applies to the filter, but I will put a separate post on the appropriate forum about that.

    Fluval 88g pressure level

    Hi All, I'm considering buying aquasabi's glass inline diffuser and they tell me that it needs just over 1 bar to run. Thing is that I'm using this Fluval 88g nano co2 kit and have no idea what pressure it puts out (documentation don't say). Anyone know? [I am aware I should stop using this...

    How to use inline dual stage reg?

    Thanks for the advice all. I have set it up as instructed and will report back when the bottle starts running low (which should be quite soon).

    How to use inline dual stage reg?

    Ta. CO2art could I get your advice on what level to set it too as well please?

    How to use inline dual stage reg?

    OK, thanks for that. So what level should I set the inline to then?

    How to use inline dual stage reg?

    I am still either misunderstanding something very basic or failing to adequately communicate what seems to me something very basic. Let me try something else. I open up the inline main and needle valve all the way and the needle valve on my JBL reg. I then turn up the main valve on JBL slowly...

    How to use inline dual stage reg?

    Thanks both for posting. CO2Art, I understand what you're describing is how it should work but that's not my experience. The bubble rate in a system with variable pressure is set by the main valve, not the needle valve. This is because an EOTD will override the needle valve. As a result the...

    How to use inline dual stage reg?

    Could I get some advice on how to run this reg? Not how to install it as it is installed fine. However, my confusion is how to make use of it. The idea is that you set the maximum pressure on the inline using the main valve on the inline to a level to limit the injection rate should the...

    CO2 system working pressure

    Understood but I thought a dual stage reg got round that problem.

    CO2 system working pressure

    What about this one? http://www.co2art.co.uk/collections/regulators-solenoids/products/professional-aquarium-co2-dual-stage-regulator-and-german-solenoid-and-smc-valve Also could I lie the bottle on its side when using this reg? One of the main reasons I use the jbl is that the disposable...

    CO2 system working pressure

    Nah. Standard large in tank ceramic glass number. I was just reading about these bazookas on another thread and am considering buying one. They need some kind of special stop valve, no? However, I've got to say that I'm uncomfortable running on very high pressures as I think it contributes...
