>I live in Norway. In 1995 I bought the Dupla CO2 Set Delta, which contains
>a pH-controller, CO2-diffusor, and a cylinder with 350 grams of CO2. All-
>in- all a highly recommended and expensive system.
>I used this in a 75 litre aquarium. The problem was that the CO2 only
>lasted 20-25 days; a lot shorter than expected. I tried to tighten the
>valve-connections, reducing the waterflow from the filter, and a few other
>improvements, but it did not reduce the CO2-consumption. pH was 6,5, KH was
>2-4. This aquarium was taken down after 1 year.
>I have now bought a 250 litre aquarium and which to use my Duplasystem
>again, but I am not sure how to cut down on CO2 consumption. If you have
>any advice, I would be grateful for a E- mail.
