    Yes, My apologies. I asked the question that cause the thread to go off track. Lets move back to the CO2 dosing discussion.

    My sharing on the injection method. For me, I am trying out power head to created extra circulation in the tank so I insert the CO2 tube at the powerhead outlet and let it blow the CO2 bubble
    around the tank.

    Does it work? The CO2 bubbles will be very big, right?

    Why don't you put the CO2 on the powerhead input, that way the impeller will help chopping the bubble into small bubble. You can even modify the impeller into needle impeller for better chopping.

    It's works for me. The bubble are small and as it is been push by the flow, it takes longer for the bubble to reach the water surface compare to the normal ceramic diffuser.

    Yes Robert, you are right. For now, there is an area on the outlet that I can insert the CO2 tube so I left it there. To route it to the. inlet, I will need to cut and modify the cover below the impeller. Actially it is just a matter if time, I will do it when my itchy hands disease relapse.

    Re: Which Co2 Delivery system are you using

    i found a NAG aqua music inline diffuser, did some enquiry from green chapter, but they have no plans to bring it in. I am currently using NAG's 2in1 bubble counter & diffuser and the quality and workmanship is so much better than DAS. ( i guess, we can expect quality from japan products) Anyone knows where else carry NAG? Or can someone psycho Ron to have GC bring them in?

    @David, this beauty is just a fraction of the price for CAl aqua-labs model.

    Hmmm.... (thinking and scratching my head)... good point... haha.

    I am very happy with my NAG though, the CO2 is in mist form compare to DAS's bubble.

    Re: Which Co2 Delivery system are you using

    The powerhead method, where the CO2 tube is being inserted at the air intake of the powerhead does quite a good job. You can actually see the bubbles bing blown throughout the tank. I was putting this method to trial when I was setting up my tank and when my DIY CO2 failed me. This method was pretty good.

    Saw that on eBay and almost ordered one to try, looks very nice for showcase setups.

    Btw, how fine are the bubbles from the NAG inline diffuser's ceramic disc?

    The bubble mist from the Up Aqua inline diffusers i'm currently using are tiny enough to just suspend indefinitely in the water and don't float up to the surface, so i'd be keen to try out other diffusers that can create similar types of tiny bubbles too.

    Re: Which Co2 Delivery system are you using

    Urban,

    I have not been able to get my hands on the NAG inline diffusers since GC has no plans to bring them in. If i keep thinking about it, i might go crazy and order overseas. My supplier is not willing to cover breakages since it is glass.

    I am only using their glass ceramic diffuser which i find the bubbles to be fine but i would not class them to be that fine to be suspended indefinitely. Too bad, i do not know how to upload video. If you want i can video and watsapp you.

    If your tank has pressurized Co2 injected, then its not really necessary for a 2 shift light schedule as the tank's Co2 supply is already controlled and if the nutrients and lights are balanced, then plants should already be out-competing the algae growth.

    I've read of some theories that plants can adapt better to interrupted light schedules better than algae, so i guess that's why some people still use the method even in Co2 injected tanks.

    Though i do know of some friend who do it mainly because they prefer to see the tank with lights on in the morning before going to work, then see it with lights on again when they come back home... then in that case, it'll be a good idea to also schedule the Co2 injection to also switch off during the lights off period, since the plants will reduce their Co2 intake and oxygen output during no light, the Co2 might build up to much higher levels, which can affect the fishes and shrimps.
    Me me! I am one of them that have 6hrs of light when I am home after work and 3hrs of light in the morning before I go to work. Haha... Really like looking into my tank non-stop.

    Hi bennyc,

    NAG stands for Nature Aquarium Goods? When you browse through ADA's website their regular products fall under Nature Aquarium Goods. So NAG is a subsidiary branding for ADA?

    I remember someone or some website, say it is a low end sister company. While some website show it is using the same OEM but so far i can't manage to track their official website. So i can't say for sure.

    Maybe, someone can enlighten me.
