Re: [APD] moving toward co2 questions

Yes, wat goes in the to and out the bottom. 

Yes. the little valve is to burp the box. This should never
be necessary except possibly if you put the reactor on the
reator onthe input side of canister.

If CO2 gathers so much that the reactor keeps filling, then
yhou need a higher water flow, not a burp. Burps just waste
CO2.  ;-)

It's a heck of a reactor.  Tip: if you disassemble for
cleaning, DON'T overtighten when screwing it back together.
The casing can crack.

RE the equipment -- I'd put money on rationalising for
shiny new. ;-)

I haven't used Milwaukee or JBJ so I can't comment there.
But why don't you wait a while and see if you end up happy
with what you have. Then you can spend the money on plants
and fish -- hmmmm, or maybe a Pinpoint pH monitor or maybe
. . . ;-)

Good luck, good fun,
