I'm struggling to make sure I properly understand how this C02 stuff
works....they list a product called, "Complete C02 system w pH
controller". If I understand things correctly, all I need is this system
and a CO2 cylinder, and perhaps some airline to run the CO2 from the
regulator to the tank. Am I missing anything?
If you want to run 8 aquaria, I suggest you get:
1. A filled cylinder, probably 20# size
2. A regulator and master needle valve to complete pressure management
3. A package of 8 trimmer needle valves (to complete individual flow
management) and diffusors
The cylinder should come from your favorite LOCAL gas supplier (they will
refill it for you when it runs out). The regulator can be bought from a
refrigeration supply company ( their usual customers are refrigerator
repair guys) or a bar supply company. You should look for a two gauge
model with a 30psi (max.) output gauge. They will cost about $30-40. The
needle valves and diffusors are available from me at $50 for one valve and
one diffusor, or $200 for 6 valves and diffusors.
