It's a Chinese knock off of the Carbo Plus system. Has a carbon bar
surrounded by electrodes; produces COČ by some kind of electrolysis, I
think. As soon as I plugged it in, the fish acted funny. I unplugged
it at night, and in the morning, I had a lot of dead fish.
I don't think it was an overload of COČ. I tested the pH, and it was
high---around 7.2. (My KH is 5) And the fish weren't gasping at the
surface: they were hugging the bottom and hiding in the glosso. I think
they got electrocuted.
