Aquarium CO2 Systems
An aquarium CO2 system is necessary for calcium reactors
for saltwater aquariums
, and for dispensing CO2 into freshwater-planted tanks. Healthy and luxuriant freshwater aquarium plants require the presence of adequate carbon dioxide. Several different naturally occuring processes in the aquarium water cause the elimination of carbon dioxide through the water surface. Plants without carbon dioxide turn yellow and lose strength. A properly configured CO2 system with a Bubble Counter
is the best way to effectively add the required amount of CO2
to a freshwater planted tank.
