Will diy co2 kit work with a glass ceramic diffuser like the rhinox 1000?
I've used diy co2 with a Hong Kong type diffuser similar to the rhinox diffusers... you just need to make sure your tubes are well sealed so the pressure can build up... it might take a few hours to start coming through.
but it worked for me
I have a Rhinox 1000 set up with diy co2 system and it works fine.
The 1000 or the cheap nano diffusers work fine with DIY CO2. Used both in the past.
thanks guys, thats all i needed to know.
Just in case this are the ones that work best from my experience: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/CO2-Nano-Glass-Di ... 2555bfff8a
are you all guy using DOY co2 method on the ceramic diffuser?
i did managed to get bubble using DIY co2 on the ceramic diffuser but less than 2 weeks there is no bubble ...not enough pressure... i find that using wooden air stone better.. fine bubbles too..
When I used yeast based solution I used two bottles and changed the solution every week, one changed on Sunday and the other on Wednesday to maintain a good level of CO2 in the tank.
I found the Barr internal reactor with venturi loop to be excellent with DIY co2.
One reason being you can turn it on\off by turning the pump on\off.
Downside, is (my attempt was) quite ugly compared to glassware.
