    Was wondering if any one can advise on one of these things, do they work?? Carbon Dioxide Supply without Gas Bottles

    The Zac Carbo Plus consists of an electronic controller which is fitted outside of the aquarium, and a Stainless Steel and Carbon Sandwich which sits in the water.

    And also went o lfs today to buy a c02 kit, didnt have any jbl, can anyone rate the following never bought cos i wasnt sure!

    1 Ferplast
    2 Hydor green nr6
    3 Aqua medic
    4 red sea

    Also do any of the tablet form co2 systems work?

    Thank you.

    buy online, itll greatly increase your choice of kits and make it alot cheaper. But you could go with just a reg and a fire extinguisher, which is probably preferable depending on how big your tank is.

    depends on how techy you want your tank, which depends on how much light you have over it. Any reasonable amount of light and youre going to struggle to get enough CO2 in there without proper injection. Unfortunately in this hobby, there are no short cuts.
