Red Sea CO2 Bio System Information



Part #: 51010

Aquariums arent just made up of water and fish. Aquariums, to be complete, need to have aquatic plants, too. These plants make the aquarium a true ecosystem, and at the same time, they add beauty and realism to the tank.

Aquatic plants, like aboveground plants, need a constant supply of carbon dioxide (CO2). They use up CO2 during photosynthesis. Without CO2, plants cant metabolize properly and therefore, cant grow healthy. Without CO2, they will wither away, instead of thriving in bright green coloring.

The Red Sea CO2 Bio System Pet Store is a product that you can use to make sure your aquatic plants get their constant supply of CO2. What makes this product special compared to other CO2 suppliers is its way of adding CO2 to the water. It has a suction cup on a powerhead that works with venturi technology, which is often seen in protein skimmers to create bubbles. For this product, the bubbles are created and blown directly to the water. These bubbles are filled with CO2, so when they pop, the gas mixes with the water to be readily used by plants.

The Red Sea CO2 Bio System encourages vibrant growth for your plants. If you want healthy and green plants, this is one product you need to use.

A natural efficient system for the production and diffusion of CO2 for aquariums up to 40 gallons. This simple and reliable system generates CO2 by a pH buffered natural fermentation process, providing an almost constant supply of CO2 for approximately one month. The CO2 is atomized and then diffused in the aquarium by a venturi pump injector. The pump`s advanced design allows it to be placed at the bottom of most tanks, utilizing the full depth of the aquarium for maximal CO2 diffusion. To prevent dangerously low pH levels, the pump can be switched off at night or connected to a timer.

Comments: I like this product but the real issue is the same with all C02 kits like this. The amount of C02 and creating the correct balance for your tank is hard. I would suggest buying a small pressurized system if you can, NRG makes a real nice small one. But if your budget won't support that this works. I think this may be just right for a 20 gallon long.

Buy C02 measuring kits though and be aware that really monitoring C02 levels is hard. Excess or deficiency levels of c02 from this can cause random algae breakouts. The pump/diffuser doesn't really seem to control output so getting a good balance in your tank is hard with this.

Ultimately get this if you have a well aerated tank that is a 20g long to 40g and you don't need too much C02 such as in a 3wpg setup.
