    It is the powder form, if i cant use powder which can i use? (Excuse me if there is only the powder variety! :oops: )

    Also it doesn't have the horn thing so would it still be ok to use?

    First time i am getting one you see so i want to make sure, it is for a 180l/ 40g tank.

    I've looked into buying those smaller extinguishers before but I could never find a pure co2 extinguisher. Those small ones that are classified as "powder" extinguished are normally designed to cover A, B and C types of fires. Therefore they area a mix of flame retardants and not pure co2. The other problem that I can see, is getting the adapter fitting that would be suitable for such a small fire extinguisher to fit onto a set of gauges. Plus, I'm not sure if that variety even has a threaded area that the gauges/adapter would screw onto.

    You need a pure CO2 FE, not a powder FE, it's a totally different type of extiguisher.
