Penguin Emperor and Aqualine Buschke co2 reactor
Two questions. I just purchased a used 75 gal with some accessories
which included the Penquin Emperor filter with biowheels. The aspect
that concerns me is the way the water is forced across the top of the
tank water when it exits the filter. It drops down from the wheels, then
hits a ledge which send it horizontally across the top of the tank at
water level. Is that going to deplete any CO2 I have injected? How
about the biowheels themselves--will all that agitation disperse the CO2?
Secondly, does anyone have any experience with Aqualine Bushcke's CO2
reactor? I was planning on doing a home yeast gizmo at least at first,
but when I saw this advertised for $25.00 the picture made it look like
you could feed the CO2 tube from the yeast into this reactor which sends
the bubble in an upward spiral giving it a travel contact of 1.45 meters.
Has anyone done this, or have they seen one up close and could tell me if
I could rig it this way.
