My big concern about using paintball cylanders for plant tank
injection is they use a light machine oil in that co2 mix to keep
your 'marker' (gun if you will) lubed during operation. I would worry
about this oil being passed onto the aquarium and causing us all kinds
Im not trying to say that it cant be done - i'm sure a quality bubble
counter would filter this small ammount of oil outa the system.
i dont have any hard data to back this up, Just my $0.02 USD.
