Re: [APD] New CO2 system
Since i have been running a discus tank (as well as 3 other tanks) with
cannister CO2 i will only comment on a couple of things.
Needle valves are not fool proof. They have been known to :"slip"
opening up to allow dangerous levels of gas into the tank. i have had them
perform for 3-4 years and suddenly fail. I believe that a device sold to
monitor the pH and shut the system down when there is a drastic drop which occurs
when there is a massive CO2 flow would be worth the expense. I have heard
that the leads are an issue and need replacement. Someone pitch in here.
Regardless, i personally would not put a cannister set up on my discus tank
again without this safegaurd. The investment in the fish warrants the
I am currently using a liquid CO2 supplement in the discus tank and am
having reasonable success.
