ISTA co2 disposable set

Postby ajinkyajin » Mon Jun 27, 2016 7:10 pm

Hi all! I setup a 1 footer nano planted tank approx 1 week ago.Have been using diy co2 of sugar and yeast but co2 pressure isnt constant at all,so I am thinking of getting ISTA disposable setup like this:

Just want to know if it is reliable or not.Just want to keep my nano away from algae as longer as possible :D

Flora:
Marsilea Hirsuta
Java Moss
Hair grass
Cabomba caroliniana

Fauna:
4 neon tetra

For the plants which you currently have, diy Co2 will be sufficient. However, if you want a carpet like appearance of Hair grass, i would suggest go for a pressurised setup. As for the ISTA Co2 kit, you have to buy a new Co2 can once the old one is empty.

what filter do you have?
Make sure you place the diffuser near max flow of water so that it can diffuse in right manner -- max gas-to-water contact w.r.t time!

The above kit is fine as long as there is consistent flow of co2. Algae happens because of imbalance of a lot of things in the aquarium. So i would suggest you provide medium lighting and co2.
