Received mine yesterday. All working here.
Did you plug in the cable for the solenoid valve (red light will turn on below the bubble counter) so the co2 can past that and into the bubble counter.
First gauge here also sits around 700 with a new 10kg cylinder connected to it.
I have used different types of CO2 diffusors. The "ADA" glass versions, DIY versions or the atomic versions:
With the atomic versions you get a misty cloud in the tank. Same with the glass versions.
I use a couple of years the AM 1000 now and it gave me the best results for plant grow and no...
They only have a 12/6 version of it: http://www.aqua-medic.de/index.php?r=catalog/product&id=13&cid=5
But you can place a short 12/16 hose on it and a 16/22 over that one.
Some people use this model to make there own diy version of it. Than you can use custom parts that suits the hose type.
ask the local liquor store. Thats where i bought my 2kg and 10kg bottle. When they are empty they can order a new one and change the old. Extra bonus, you get a new checked and save bottle everytime :)
I am using these 2:
My 250L is using an Aquamedic reactor 1000: http://www.aquablog.nl/597-aqua-medic-reactor-1000/
And my 60L tank is using a small atomizer like: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Aquarium-CO2-ATOMIZER-SYSTEM-Diffuser-16-22mm-Hose-air-/270720292227
Before i was using the glass...
i was wondering if i can split the co2 tube i use for my big tank.
I am setting up (again :P) my 60cm tank and maybe i want to use CO2 for it. before i used bioCO2 (works also). I have an empty 500Gr co2 bottle. but i need a regulator for that. and they cost alot :P so i was thinking how to use...
I found an old glass diffusor in some old aquarium stuff boxes :P but the diffusor isn't tha clean anymore. the glass itself is a bit white and the ceramic plate (top) is green. how can i clean this? i cant get inside the glass. will war mwater do the trick?
any suggestions? :roll:
