Aqua Medic CO2 Reactor 1000 Information

Product Manuals & Documentation

An aquarium isn't just about fish. It's about plants, too. A complete aquarium has its own fair share of healthy greens, as much as its share of colorful fish. Thus, it's important that you supply enough carbon dioxide or CO2 in your tank so that the plants can live long.

To make sure that the plants get their supply of CO2, you need to put a CO2 reactor in place, such as the Aqua Medic CO2 Reactor 1000 from Pet Store. This sealed-airtight reactor introduces CO2 in your tank by pumping water from top all the way top the bottom. This movement opposes the CO2 gas bubbles that slowly rise through the dissolution path. Because of the path's spiral design, the dissolution rate is quite high. High dissolution rates mean efficient usage of CO2. This will greatly benefit the plants in your fish tanks. You will see the difference in their coloring. Don't be surprised to see vibrantly green plants in your aquariums! This reactor can be used for big aquariums with a capacity of 500 gallons, so even huge aquariums full of plants can get their adequate share of CO2.

The Aqua Medic CO2 Reactor 1000 can be placed within the aquarium, or if there is enough space, in the filtration system. Its versatile mounting plate makes positioning easy.

Closed external CO2 reactor for aquaria up to 500 gal

This is a hermetically sealed reactor for the introduction of CO2 into large live plant systems. This powerful unit is designed to efficiently dissolve rising CO2 bubbles in strong counter-current water flow. The robust mounting plate enables it to be easily mounted outside the aquarium or inside the cabinet. Able to provide rapid CO2 introduction for systems as large as 500 gallons, the Reactor 1000 has proven to be a capable favorite among keepers of sizeable live plant systems. This is supplied with a strong holder. Accepts 1/2" tubing. Total height: app. 15 in; diameter app. 3 in.

Comments: they restrict flow of water. It back pressurizes the entire system, might be ok for small setups but not good for ¾” or bigger plumbing/hoses. The nipples that attach to the unit are weak, and gave in to pressure from a 1200GHP pump after 2 mechanical filters and one bio. For $20 at ACE I made one it will never break or leak.

Comments: The Aqua Medic CO2 reactor is built extremely strong. I've had this on my systems now for over 4 years and I must say it works as it did day one. All the hardware is built to last and has. If anyone is looking for a great reactor for saltwater I must say this is it. Cost more but there's a reason for that - you will not be replacing it next year!
