    Ultimate C02 = ULTIMATE PEACE OF MIND!

    Posted by Frederick Mathiesen on Jul 16th 2016

    I read everything I could find on the internet, visited many shops. Long story cut short... over and over the single best component I bought! This grouping of equipment seemed so over whelming when I unpacked it. The directions are thin to say the least but, I learned the system by studying the simplistic drawing in the product discription. Stay organized and start at one end and work though the system. Honestly, I had to reassemble 3 times due to leaks. Do THIS AND IT WON'T = COMPLETLEY WRAP THREADS TWICE WITH TEFLON TAPE. BUY SOME SILICONE RUBBER GASKIT LUBE. COAT MALE AND FEMALE THREADS LIGHTLY BUT COMPLETLY AFTER THEY ARE TAPED. Tighten till just snug + 1/8th turn. Be gentle. I have not had a leak!!! On the 2nd day my plants were happily making pearls. The compliments never stop. G6 filter easily drives this syestem and the 18 watt UV inline I added to the return line. DO IT RIGHT OR DO IT OVER! These guys know CO2. Buy with confidence. 4 months and counting of SWEET SUCCESS!

    Another wow for me

    Posted by Erik Hoskinson on Dec 6th 2013

    This place is great, This CO2 system is so easy. A few months ago I didn't even know about CO2, never had live plants, so of course I was worried about introducing this to my Discus tank. With their lighting and this CO2, plants that were turning brown, are growing chutes like crazy. This system is as easy as, hook it up and turn it on. All I used was the diagram. If you want a planted tank with the nice plants, then this system is well worth the money.

    I was on the fence about c02. When I saw this product I thought well maybe I can pull it off. I have had no problems none! It is easy to install, set and forget. I could not be more satisfied with this purchase.

    Yes it is expensive, but you will NEVER regret buying it!!!! Had mine for a few years now and still works like a champ, no problems. Worth the piece of mind to just set it up and never worry about it again. It is the BEST SYSTEM IN THE WORLD!!!!

    Worth the price for high end equipment.

    Posted by Rich on Nov 4th 2011

    I purchased the full system with the 5000 reactor and a 10 lbs cylinder in March 2011. At first I wasn't seeing much growth but in approximately 2 weeks my system was THRIVING! There equipment is unmatched in the industry. Not to mention the customer service and expertise was available any time I had a question. AquariumPlants you guys rock! Rich in SpringHill, FL

    complete co2 system

    Posted by Travis Fisher on Sep 29th 2009

    First off, the customer help at aquarium plants is amazing. They are patient with you and eager to help solve whatever problems may arise. They are unmatched in this area. This is a great co2 system. It works as stated and will save you time compared to systems that make you continually test your ph levels. The system does not come with enough written instructions so if you are not technically proficient like me you might have to call customer service(alot). In addition, I did have problems with reactor leakage. They tape provided was not enough to seal the few drips coming off of it so I had to purchase more tape and sealant to do the job. Other than that, it truly is a great system from a great company.

    This is by far the best CO2 system that I've ever seen. The entire system took maybe 30 minutes to install, start to finish. Once I made a simple calibration to the probe I placed the probe in the tank and set the PH controller to 6.5 PH. It hasn't deviated from that number once and every single one of my 40+ plants has been pearling like mad ever since. A system of this quality and reliability though the initial investment is comparatively high over manual systems will pay for itself in the long run just in time saved over not having to test the PH. I would recommend this system over any others on the market today.Thanks guys for building such a great product at such a reasonable price.

    In A Word..Perfect!

    Posted by Patrick Doyle on Dec 12th 2006

    This is my first time using injected CO2 and at first, I was a bit hesitant to buy one. After looking at just about every competitors' system I decide to buy yours. Man am I glad I did! The whole thing took less than 20 minutes from start to finish. Your instructions walked me through everything, and your kit has everything needed..I mean everything (including extra tubing). The Milwaukee monitor/controller is an amazing product as well. I set the PH to 6.8 and in 3 days it hasn't deviated once. In addition, I have the ability any time I want to see what my PH reading is without having to use a test kit (and guess what the color/PH reading is). One of the coolest things about this setup is the reactor. Watching the reactor churning the CO2 in the chamber is eye candy! Thank you for creating such a complete and great product!
