In fact the bubble counter is made to easily regulate the flow of CO2 delivered in the reactor... and also prevents water for geting into the CO2 bottle, which is really important.

The reactor is made to mix CO2 with the aquarium water. The best one is the Dupla Reaktor S.
The reaktor 400 is good but some CO2 is lost !
