  • CO2 for Nano set up

    I need a co2 setup for nano tank, i know ADA and Dennerle make one,

    But i thought i would ask for ideas to put one together!

    I found a neat regulator i think it is used in homebrew applications

    With a needle valve this should sit next to a nano tank without looking out of place.

    Be sure to use a very good needle or metering valve with your nano. You need good control at the very low flow rates that you will be running. Fabco needle valves are compact and they may work well for you. A larger valve is the Ideal. The Ideal 52-1-12 or the one with the Vernier handle, the V52-1-12, will work great. These are angle shape valves. Ideal also has straight though designs. This is the 51-1-12 and V51-1-11.

    Ideal needle valves:

    You may want to contack yikesjason for some advice. He has a nice one.

    And here is my first dual stage build from just this week.

      Try Excel dosing, works well, and you are simply not after rapid growth on such small tanks, not unless you like trimming frequently.
