Hey all, I have set up a DIY CO2
system for my new 180l. There is an amazing (kudos and a big thanks to the author) 'how to' article available that I have been using as a guide. I have everything I need, most parts readily available over the 'net. However!!!!! I can not get my hands on a suitable airstone. (I'm using the design that has the airstone inside the python tube connected to a powerhead for maximum diffusion) I have just spent another day trawling the 'net (having exhausted my LFS
's and Aussie mail order options) and I can't find anywhere with the particular product that delivers down under. Sigh.
The airstones I have purchased so far, all 9 available options, are far too coarse. The bubbles are way to big and diffusion ineffective. Being a DIY perfectionist type of girl this annoys me. A lot. So wasteful.
The Kordon mist-air fine airstone I'm after appears to be readily available in the good old USA. (Even the manufacturer doesn't ship here).
Would any of you be willing to buy me a few and post them? I will of course pay you up front for the purchase and the postage.
I am desperately frustrated at this point. I keep looking at the tank and I'm annoyed enough by it to not be enjoying it as much as I should be. Sad really but true as any other DIY perfectionist will understand.
So, any takers? I can offer my sincere and endless thanks and, should you ever make your way down under, I will be happy to show you around my fair city! Including our rather grand giant aquarium in town with all those lovely sharks close up. Or I could just take you swimming at the beach and we will probably see a shark up REALLY close.........ha ha.
