    Default Aqua One cO2 kit - advice?

    Hi All,

    After a few years with a low-tech, i am looking to upgrade. I found this: https://www.catch.com.au/product/co2...fb0364bae4b235

    Is this a good start for Co2? I notice there is no Solenoid, can i fit one to it (buying elsewhere)?

    I know the Aqua One brand is a cheaper brand, but i am cheap too Also looked at the Fluval kit, but more leaning towards Aqua One due to price.

    Suggest not buying aqua 'once' kit.

    Either you do proper CO2 or don't bother. You will spend twice and waste your time and muulah.

    my first venture into co2 was with that up aqua kit, its terrible, in the end the store I purchased from let me return as the regulator was leaking, as rebel said, spend a bit of cash and buy a decent set up, the mini kits are not worth the pain.

    a good "starter" could be these two products:

    $80 - King Keg Aquarium Reg with solenoid - https://www.keg-king.com.au/aquarium...oid-valve.html

    $85 - 2.6kg king keg bottle (on sale atm) - https://www.keg-king.com.au/co2-gas-...full.html.html

    Then you just need co2 tube and a method to diffuse the co2 into the tank (in tank diffuser or inline atomizer or reactor)
