The AquaCare CO2 Reactor consists of PVC and can be fastened with two wall clips. The pressure side of an external filter or a pump leads to the upper connection of the reactor - the lower connection leads back again into the aquarium. With very strong pumps the reactor should be operated in the bypass. The CO2 bubbles from the bottom into the reactor - an extra bubble counter is not necessary, if the equipment is well visibly attached.
The higher the number of CO2 bubbles, the more the water is acidified. The ideal pH value is in a plant aquarium (amazon type) between 6,5 and 7,0. The dosage of the carbon dioxide can be done automatically with a pH value controller and an attached solenoid valve. Like that an overdosing is impossible. Alternatively the night shut off equipment can be used, which is operated with the help of a timer and a solenoid valve.
However a check valve made for CO2 must be used to prevent the CO2 tank for damages.
Tip! If you use an CO2 Reactor the pH value should be measured and controlled. Otherwise a pH value drop may occur.
