I am thinking about getting a CO2
Reactor Kit 200 that Floridadriftwood.com offers for $50 US, for my 55gal. I like the fact that I don't have to do any plumbing and can just plug it in and go, and I also like that I can put it on a timer so it shuts off at night.
I am wondering if anyone has used one of these units, and also if there is danger of a leak while it is turned off at night. I have a T-valve in place with a plastic cap on one leg of the T so it acts as a pressure release, but I don't know how much pressure is likely to build up overnight.
I hesitate to do anything since right now my tank looks like a glass of champagne with the pearling, but I don't have any control over the CO2
, so it changes right before I need to change out my mixture, and before the new mix gets rolling. (I know, I know, pressurized....I am just not into the expense and DIY
project that would entail right now. The twins are 3 and are like a couple of chimps, and I run a business at home, so quick and easy has its appeal)
