Co2 life-2-injection system?

Has anyone had any success using this? Looks pretty convenient. I have a 55 low-tech w/Satellite freshwaterautolinker.com autolinking image LED+ and lots of Swords and a Black Brush Algae problem; it was recommended after an earlier post that my BBA required some Co2 (and less light--seven hours was mentioned) to treat, but I am reluctant to get into the pressurized tank setup; my wife barely puts up with my exposed Eheim (metal frame stand). That said, replacement carts for this are about $25, so I don't know. Pressurized Co2 is not an area I know anything about and, till now, never really needed

Re: Co2 life-2-injection system?

For me, I found it easier to just get a CO2 tank from the local beer distributor and purchase a regulator. Back when I had it running the tanks were about $20 to fill, and the regulator cost me about 90.

70 gallon- Betta Enisae pair, betta Ocellata pair, female Betta Pugnax

29 Gallon- Betta Pallifina and Betta Patoti

20 Gallon- Betta Gladiator

5 Gallon- Betta Channoides

And numerous Betta Splendens

Coming soon: Betta Macrostoma :D

should also add, its NOT the prettiest set up in the world.... but could be concealed in a tank stand pretty easily.

Re: Co2 life-2-injection system?

Hey Dave,
I have not seen a good review on that unit .
Most who want co2 in anything over 30g usually go pressurized(I have a thread).
For BBA I would do the 'one two punch'.
The "One-Two Punch" Whole Tank Algae Treatment - The Planted Tank Forum
All on page one!
If that didn't work after a couple attempts I would look into something more like this;
Algae Remove Treatment Chihiros Doctor Twinstar Electronic Inhibit Green Algae | eBay
Chihiros Doctor Twinstar Live Plant Mini Max 120L Inhibit Algae Sterilizer | eBay

Can't say which model is right for your tank...
Good luck!
