Comments: Tried it for 3 months, but it will not dissolve the CO2 properly: Large bubbles escape and waist CO2. tried everything to make it work as described in the 'manual'. Surprised by other (positive) reviews.

Comments: I like that this unit is compact. However, being small, the unit cannot handle a high bubble rate. About 1 bubble per second is the max or else the CO2 in the chamber gets to large that a lot is ejected.

Comments: Hi Im from the U.K.Where you cant buy the C02 Reactor 500 on its own. I was recommended Marine Depot from Gina's Aquarium Supply because they do not ship to the U.K. I received the reactor within 5 Working days it now has been working for just over two weeks I would recommend this reactor 500 because it dissolves all the C02 in the vortex chamber then into your fish tank instead of being vented on the water surface. Now I shall look what else I can buy in the U.S.A and can’t get in the U.K.

Comments: I like the fact that it is small and compact so it is easy to tuck it away. One improvement would be if they could change the design to have the cord come out the top of the unit.
