Well, the guy at the lfs had been sorting through his shelves and found an old set by tetra. It was supposed to be £14, but he let me have it for £8, and he let me have a co2 indicator for £9 instead of £12.95. He also threw in a non return valve and a spare diffusion cylinder (must remember to wear makeup more often )
My brilliant bargains of the day I've installed it all in my tank and it's looking good.

I've found a way to stop it at night. But will take me a few days to perfect it. You fill up the cylinder with co2 and it gradually diffuses into the water. So if I work out how much it uses a day, I can just squirt in that amount every morning when I feed the fish and the cylinder will have run out by the evening

I can link cylinders together to allow more co2 to diffuse into the water if I need more too. My indicator is still blue at the moment but apparently it's about 2-3 hours behind so I think it'll need a bit longer yet. It only had a few hours before my lights went out.

I'm glad I bought it now, it's actually really simple when you've got the product in front of you

Just you wait for all my co2 threads now
