Read about this on the PFK website. Apparently it produces a steady amount of CO2 from a carbon cartridge by electrolysis. It goes on to say "It won’t cause sudden changes of pH in the aquarium." and "...the carbon cartridge needs to be changed every 2/4 months "
Does anyone have any experience or additional knowledge regarding this product? Is it a viable alternative to pressurised CO2 or liquid CO2?

I've got one and my only thoughts so far is it's massive, I haven't tested it yet but look out for a review in PFK soon.

Just don't know where I can get any first hand reviews. :?

It is a different system, but it still uses the same technique through electrolysis, so i would read the comments on the link gave above, or shortened down:

dont buy one.



Thanks, Aaron

Hi,

I have this stuff installed (the smaller one unit, called Sicce CO2 Life 1) on my 75l tank for about one month. The results were all negative:
- no oxygen bubbles on plants at all
- it was a big, massive ugly thing in my tank
- drop checker with 4dKh water was never near to green color. It stayed in blue.

I dont advise for anybody to buy this.

My opinion, and my experience is that CO2 equipments based on electrolisys is NOT an alternative for high pressurized systems. (I wanted a cheaper solution for CO2 than high pressurized system, but it was a mistake I see now.)

After I bougth a high pressurized system, my plants start to pearling, drop checker was first in green, lime green in my life. :)
