Why spend lots of money on a product of questionable quality when you can
buy a high pressure CO2 setup for <BOLD> LOTS <BOLD> less?
Gomberg high pressure system without tank: $ 119
10 lb CO2 tank: $ 60 ( may be more or less )
Note: You can buy different CO2 tanks to meet your needs. For example, 10 lb
and 20 lb tanks are also available, in addition to larger sizes. Price
increases as tank size increases.
The final price of $179 for the high-pressure CO2 setup and tank is
approximately $100 less than the Ceomat CO2 system. Also, replacement
blocks run $39.99! Woah! CO2 tank refills cost anywhere from $5 to $20
depending on the size of the tank. I would expect a 10 lb CO2 refill cost
about $10. In the long run, it would cost less to go the high-pressure
Two more things to consider, First, I don't believe the Carbo plus unit can
be used in conjunction with a controller, and second, if you get a larger
fish tank, you can always purchase a larger CO2 tank. I don't imagine that
you would want to purchase additional Carbo Plus units since the cost of
doing so would be waaay too steep!
Hope this helps
