    can anyone confirm for me that the regulator from the lunapet / Aquarianerversand system on ebay (http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Aquarianerversand) will work with a FE once the supplied bottle has run out? has anyone had sucess getting the supplied bottles refilled?

    has anyone found a cheaper regulator/valve/solonoid/diffuser set, other than the £60 malasian kit on ebay?

    thanks again.

    Do you mean this one?

    If so, I am using that on a 2kg FE with no probs :) Nice regulator.

    Both my regs are from lunapet, cant fault them.

    If you want a basic kit this one is good and comes with a glass diffuser. The only thing you'd need to add is a bubble counter, if you wanted to. I run mine without a bubble counter now, but its useful as a guide if you're just starting with co2 :)

    If you want a solenoid as well then this kit would do.

    Remember that you are unlikely to be able to refill the supplied cylinder with these kits so don't be tempted to get a 2kg one, you're just wasting money with those. Switch to FE's once the supplied cylinder has run out.

    All that said, it would be cheaper to get all the parts separately but that can be a hassle.

    Read the pinned article superman. I think the FE thread is in tutorials.

    The solenoid is included in the kit you showed me on TFF. It is an electronic valve that you time to come on 2 hours before lights on and go out 2 hours before lights off, thus giving you CO2 for the photoperiod only and not putting excess CO2 into the tank during lights out.

    Some of us use them and some of us run 24/7
