I've been working out which way to inject Co2
and I figured I would just make it part of a filtration system. so the design is this.
Flow rate should be around 150GPH, tho I may have to reduce it so it doesn't blow all the sand out of the fluidized bed.
each tube is 17.5" high, and 4.5" in diameter (maybe 4") and uses 1/2" ID
tubing. It will take some messing around with the sand to mark the levels, but it should provide huge biological filtration. I may also consider adding a UV
sterilizer down the road between the Co2
chamber and the fluidized bed.
A) do you think this will provide adequate filtration for a 125Gal (it will also have a fluval 304 on the tank) (best answer I can find is that the fluidized bed should handle about 300Gal)
B) Is 150GPH enough flow to effectively inject Co2
into this tank? (pressurized Co2
) or should I move it to a seperate powerhead @ 295GPH.
Thanks for any info.
