There is no question that oxygen is an important component in a healthy aquarium. Fish, corals and other aquatic creatures breathe in oxygen to live. It's not surprising that there are many pieces of equipment that can be used to promote oxygenation in the aquarium.
On the other hand, though, carbon dioxide (CO2) is just as important as oxygen. An aquarium isn't really complete without the presence of water plants. These plants, in order to thrive, need CO2 to live. Thus, it's imperative that you regulate the CO2 levels in your aquarium, which can be done by using the Red Sea CO2 Pressure Regulator for Standard CO2 Bottles from Pet Store
This regulator comes with a full set of features, including its own needle valve. It is designed especially for aquariums
, so it comes with a flow valve which you can use to adjust water flow in high precision. The valve can be placed on one side of the tank to enable easy access, whether you want to use it to adjust the water flow or to turn it off.
The Red Sea CO2 Pressure Regulator for Standard CO2 Bottles can be connected to a CO2 tube which releases sufficient supplies of CO2 to the water if the regulator readings are too low.
Full-featured safety regulator with independent needle valve
Designed specifically for aquarium use, the Pressure Regulator and Needle Valve are independent units connected by low-pressure CO2 tubing. The high precision fine-flow valve is designed to be mounted on the side of the aquarium enabling easy access for regular flow adjustment or complete shut off.
Once assembled and set to the desired working pressure the CO2 Cylinder/Regulator can be located out of site, behind or under the aquarium.
Easily upgradeable for automatic control with an in-line solenoid control valve.
