Why not e-mail the seller and see if they can get the Easy2 for a good price? Then you'll be sure that it'll fit correctly.
I bought mine from a European seller, SeaMe.com but they have gone up a lot since I bought mine by the look of things!

I would get a bubble counter; in fact I've just fitted a beetle counter from Ebay to make it much easier to count the bubble rate.

Why wouldn't this work anyway?

Why wouldn't what work?

It would just cost more money. I doubt they would sell it to me specially.

Despite this, I have enquired.

So, to review the stuff you'd need to buy:

JBL Easy 1 set from Zooplus for £60 ish pounds which comes with:
* Precision pressure reducer
* 500 g single-use CO2 safety bottle
* Highly effective CO2 vario-diffusion system
* Water safety valve to prevent backflow
* Connecting hose 4/6 mm
* pH/CO2 permanent test (drop checker)

Bubble counter:
£3.99 - http://www.aquaessentials.co.uk/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=196_308&products_id=1605
£3.39 (From Malaysia) - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/CO2-bubbles-c...VQQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp1638Q2em118Q2el1247

Now, the kit above comes with a vario diffuser. You can stick with this or you might decide to go for a glass diffuser which will cost you about £5 from ebay sellers, or about £8 from Aqua Essentials. Purely optional at this stage.

I think that covers everything really.

Just going to bump this thread as I want to start over again.

I'm thinking of going with mainly crypts and different sizes and some wood here and there with moss on (already have the wood and moss).

Obviously I'll want some balanse (excuse my spelling of it) and then varying sizes right down to parva - that's the small one right?

Would this work with my lighting and no co2 and ferts? I don't want huge growth, just for it to grow over time.

AE do some crypts: http://www.aquaessentials.co.uk/index.p ... cvj4fmm1u3

Which ones and how many do you think I should buy? I will probably need some tropica plants just for some specialist ones like parva.

Oh if you're wondering I just want a nice jungle again :).
