It uses a different method for getting co2
to plants. Rather than diffusing the co2
into the water, this method creates a co2
mist (microbubbles) that stick to the leaves of the plant. This method is more efficient at delivering co2
to plants, as they don't have to draw it from the water. It is so efficient, that within 10 minutes of lights out (and co2
being turned off), my fish were gasping for air. I've since started a new better (uses more co2
, but I no longer have problems with co2
levels in the water) that uses a powerhead, so the spray bar is now pointed out of the water, but the microbubbles still enter the water, and will be pushed downwards towards the plants with the powerhead (in my case a koralia evolution nano 400gph). It should be coming tomorrow, but if you're planning on using this on your 10 gallon, as much as I want to sell it, it will be overkill.
