    Harlequin CO2 Sensitivity

    I had 6. one died right away, 2 jumped, one got done by the silver tips and after that the two that left didnt take long to check out. I dunno, i didnt really see them gasp at the surface but then again when my rummys start feeling the co2 they hug the substrate and gasp.

    Can anyone recommend a co2 system for a 500 litre tank ?

    I would advise a up atomizer on the return pipe. Neat and effiecent. I've had no issues with mine. Some people don't like the fine mist of bubbles that is produced but I don't mind.

    Inline diffusers??

    My UP atomizer makes a slight hissing noise. My drop checker is a nice lime green and there's a fine mist of bubbles coming from the spray bar. Is this normal? All the connections are nice and tight.

    DD C02 Kit

    I'm thinking of getting an air stone to run at night to boost the oxygen levels when the co2 is off. Am I right and thinking That you don't want to agitate the water too much so as not to let the co2 out?

    DD C02 Kit

    Managed to get a full 5kg FE for 34 quid posted, very pleased. What's everybody opinion on an inline atomizer? Better than right into filter?

    DD C02 Kit

    Thanks ceg, it's reasureing to have this spelt out a bit for me! Being new to this I don't have the safety net of assumed knowledge. Because I don't fully understand things in practice I worry about the small things, like bits of metal you plug into other bits of metal! I'll try not to over...

    I'm thinking of getting this reg/solenoid. Looking through ebay theres a huge number of variations most of which I've never heard of and wouldn't be able to choose between.

    DD C02 Kit

    I've found a 5 kg FE online for about £50, is it just a case of getting a regulator with solenoid and screwing it in? Can you refill FE 's? I know its like asking how long us a piece of string but how long should I be expecting from a cylinder of that size? Ceg I'll look into the reactors, I...

    DD C02 Kit

    Point taken. Flow is an issue. I have a eheim 2078. I intend to put together a spray bar twice the size of the standard eheim number along the back wall facing towards the front and down. I realize this gives me less that the perfered turnover rate so will be supplementing this with a koralia...

    DD C02 Kit

    So the full diy set up then? The lighting will be 2x39watt t5s. This seems on the low side to me but as this is my first tank I dunno what I'm basing this on! I'm intending planting the tank iwagumi style with mainly carpeting plants with a few stems.

    DD C02 Kit

    I've decided to go down a complete C02 system as opposed to a DIY effort has anybody used this kit? http://www.charterhouse-aquatics.co.uk/ ... -2435.html it seems to be about the cheapest with a solenoid that i can find. I will be running it in a 260l tank and have no idea how much c02 it...
