Hey!

I have had my mind set on buying the D&D c02 kit from AE for some time now.

I know i want to eventually move onto using FEs after seeing Dan sells them on here.

So my question is, could i use all the D&D equipment on a FE?

I know that you can definaltely buy an adapter that allows the D&D reg to be used with refillable bottles.

Would this work on an FE?

If not, ive seen alot of good being said about lunapet and their regs and solenoids...

So they would be my next choice. I can find the regulator fine, but i cant find the solenoid.

Im also not sure on the price because i dont speak german and know nothingg about euros haha

I want to try and keep the c02 side of things cheap, but not cheap enough that im going to have to replace it right away.

Im trying to sort out my budget to get an Arcadia 120cm overtank luminaire.

So any help and advice would be very helpful.

yes you will need the adapter if you go for the D&D, but why not buy all the equipment of ebay, rather than paying the extra money for D&D??

look at the guide in my sig.

Thanks so much mate...

So if i was to buy them and stick them on a FE from Dan there should be no problems assuming i havent messed up the installation :p ?

Im going to buy a rhinox 2000 to diffuse c02

Should be quite a quality set up eh? :D

Thanks alot

Sorry to interrupt. Just to cover the Lunapet stuff - this is the solenoid:

http://www.lunapet.de/product_info.php?products_id=56

You'll find all the individual CO2 parts under the "CO2 Zubehör" menu. The sets are under the "CO2 Anlagen" menu.

I don't speak German either but BabelFish is your friend, even if it speaks pigeon English.

Here's the first paragraph from the solenoid - enough to figure out what's going on.

CO2 is the structure substance for your aquatic plants. Nearly half of the Trockensubstanz of plants is carbon which aquatic plants out in the water solved CO2 refer. In the aquarium there is hardly natural supplies of this important structure material, therefore should be fertilized for sumptuous plant stature with CO2.
I'm wanting some of that "sumptuous plant stature"! :lol:

For the currency conversion, here's one of many ...
