    CO2 Reactor for small tank..which ones?

    I measure ph with my tds pen, same spot daily. I can place the probe in my overflow chamber and leave for a few minutes for the probe to stabilize. I contacted the guy in Germany, He told me to measure pH in my sump with the diffuser and then with the reactor. Obviously the micro bubbles from...

    CO2 Reactor for small tank..which ones?

    Only if I shut off the valve completely will it burp out gass every now and then. But slightly open it doesnt do that :) I dont quite get why my ph is higher hmm. If we assume it dissovles 100% then should be better than a diffuser, and the 3bps I was running on diffuser should be more than enough

    CO2 Reactor for small tank..which ones?

    Update on the reactor, hmm not really happy about it... 4.5bps 1.5bps more than with my co2art diffuser. And yet pH is still 0.2 higher than with diffuser. Using 50% more co2 to get less of pH drop just feels weird

    CO2 Reactor for small tank..which ones?

    Hi Sdogg, yea after opening the bypass a bit, my pH actually raised. Now im at 1bps more than my diffuser, thought I was gonna save on Co2 with this reactor hmm

    CO2 Reactor for small tank..which ones?

    Thanks, will try to open it a bit :) I have now opened bypass 10-15°, will give it a couple of days to settle in :)

    CO2 Reactor for small tank..which ones?

    I see, yea running 12/16mm hose, will leave it as is. Just feels weird its less effective than diffuser

    CO2 Reactor for small tank..which ones?

    Hi all I just installed the midi version yesterday with a bypass on my 576l tank with 112l sump. Previously had the co2art bazooka which was doing a good job 3bps was enough to go from 7.5ph to 6.9, green on the drop checker with 20 ppm fluid in. The reactor is driven by a Eheim compact 600l/h...

    Question about drop checker

    I found the aqua rebell one on there, will order the 20mg/L :) i had a bottle 10yrs old hehe. But fluid was pale and clear, so no good anymore. Thanks

    Question about drop checker

    Thanks, yea I will look into that :) ! Thanks all Just a quick following up question. I found this on Amazon.de (I'm from denmark) It says 20mg/L is that the same as 20ppm ?

    Question about drop checker

    Thanks for clarifying :) I measured exactly 1ml og the drop checker solution and exactly 1ml of distilled water. I just find it hard to see the color of it maybe it's more than 15ppm and turning into yellowish? I'll try adding a few more drops, worth a try :)

    Question about drop checker

    Hi, thanks :) So drop checker is basically a ph indicator, and since I don't know my kh I will not know how much ppm co2? I actually just found a test report for my well water, it says 48mS/m, not sure if that can be converted to kH?

    Question about drop checker

    Hi all :) I recently decided to convert my low tech to gas. Tank was running low light and ferts fine with not many algeas, so I do not plan to mess with the lighting, as that seems good. I just wanted to get a confirmation that I'm doing this right :) I got a co2art regulator yesterday...

    Cory food thats not messy?

    Thank you all :) ! I made a small test yesterday, I put a pellet in a glass of water, and let it sit for hours, I noticed how the water turned slightly cloudy and full of small micro particles. Exactly as my tank water. Did the same test with an algae type pellet, and no clouding or particles...

    Cory food thats not messy?

    Thank you, I will take a look at the bug bites :) I also just stumpled apon repashy, seems pretty water stable. Gonna order omnivore and vegan mix for otos to try out :)

    Cory food thats not messy?

    Hi all :) I was wondering what type of cory food you are using, I'm currently using NLS pellets, they love them but I find they cloud up my water alot with alot of small particles floating around. It's to the point where I only feed cories every other day so the tank get a chance to clear up...
