I plan on using this in my 46 Gallon bowfront.

Aquatic 16ft tubing


Premium AQUATEK CO2 Regulator with Integrated COOL TOUCH Solenoid


I still need a bubble counter and a diffuser/reactor. Can anyone recommend any good ones?

It says it comes with a bubble counter although I don't see it.

What kind of filter do you have? You can make a CO2 reactor, or buy one if you have a canister. There are also inline diffuser you can use with canisters too.

I I didn't even notice that it came with a bubble counter. It looks like it's this one.

I have 3 filters available at the moment. A fluval 70 a fluval c4 and and a fluval 306 canister.

I would switch it out for this bubble counter,


And then get a reactor so you don't have micro bubbles in your tank. I don't see any reactors on amazon that look like they would be worth it. You can build one yourself if you want. Or use this or something like it since you have a canister.

I would not get that bubble counter. It is junk. I used it for awhile and it failed on me. It is cheap plastic.

I got this one from eBay and I am very happy with it.


You would need the single head one.

FYI. You will have micro bubbles in the tank if you use the atomizer. I use one on a smaller planted tank. It doesn't bother me. But some people prefer not to have them.
