Co2 system

Was thinking of picking up one of these

Fluval Planted Tank Co2 Equipment - All Pond Solutions - All Pond Solutions

It's for a 6 gallon tank. My first 'warm up' attempt at co2. There are no livestock in this tank so it will be an experiment. I know what the draw backs are with this system but I don't want a huge system in my bedroom. Just something neat and tidy.

Any have one of these are something similar?

I will buy a proper set up at some point but I want to build up slowly.

I'd get something refillable, also a regulator with solenoid you can put on a timer.
You've got co2 art over there, should be a one stop shop bud.

Yeah I have been looking. Just don't want a large fire extinguisher in my room. I'd have to go either soda stream or paintball.

Just bought a DSLR so will prob have to wait till next month. I'll keep my eye open. Thanks.

I have a fluval Co2 setup on my 20 gallon. It works fine however buying the small non refill cartridges are expensive and unrealistic. I just dug up a few old paintball Co2 tanks I had in my closet and I'm working on making a DIY paintball Co2 setup.

At the end of the day, a planted tank looks and does great with Co2. I just started up Co2 about a month ago and the difference is amazing
