Last night I bought a Duetto DJ100 internal filter to use as a CO2
"reactor" (or whatever you would like to call it, couldn't think of
anything better). I hooked my pressurized CO2 system up to its air intake
tube and let it rip. Previously I had been bubbling the CO2 into the
intake tube of my Fluval 404 canister, but, it seemed that the gas was
getting trapped in the cannister only to be released in bulk after building
up over a period of time, releasing large bubbles, rattling the filter, and
I am sure, wasting the CO2. My pH was 7.2 yesterday at this time. Today
it is 6.2. Talk about good CO2 mixing. So, I am dropping the bubble rate
down from 1 per second to 1 every 3 seconds to see where it stabilizes. I
have the filter's flow rate set at its lowest as well. I know this topic
has been brought up on APD before, but, I just wanted everyone to know that
it does indeed work well (at least for me)!
