Just looking for some reviews on a Co2 system I'm thinking about and just wondering if anyone has one or any pros and cons about this unit. I will install it on a 36 gallon community tank that I've had some plant issues with, freshfish has been helping me out with some great advise but I may be ready to upgrade soon. I'm thinking about the ISTA complete system that's in the Dr.Foster and Smith catalog for $199.99. It comes with the regulator 2and1 bubble counter and a ceramic diffuser. Some of this is "Greek" to me because this is a new area for me. Something that I struggle with is how much to dose or how many bubble would be needed before damaging the plants or harming the fish. Sorry about the fact I need so much help but I keep seeing and reading about some of your tanks and it seems the common theme is Co2 injection and I would love to have the results as so many of you have, Please educate a "newbee" at Co2 :shrug: :shrug:

Obviously a pressurized system. Pressurized is more efficient than your DIY methods. The diffuser essentially chops up the CO2 into smaller bubbles so it saturates quicker into the water column.

Can you post a link to what you are purchasing?
