The latest result of the work carried out by the research and development department is a new, highly effective yet extremely compact CO2 diffusor designed especially for mini aquaria: The CO2 Nano Flipper.
Effective dissolving of CO2
Integrated bubble-counting function
- Incl. waste gas vent
How it works:
The CO2 bubbles issue from the opening at the bottom of the Flipper and rise along the channels. Part of the CO2 dissolves in the aquarium water in the process. The rest accumulates in the collector, from where it is released into the water. The safe design of the collector ensures that the small quantities of CO2 which are customary for nano aquaria are effectively dissolved, while undesired large quantities of CO2 are discharged automatically via the waste gas vent. The scope of delivery thus includes 2 collectors the smaller one for 10-25 l aquaria, and the larger one for 25-40 l aquaria.
The crucial advantage over the CO2 diffusors with ceramic membrane which are commonly used for nano aquaria is that the Nano Flipper does not produce any counterpressure. This means that it responds directly to changes on the pressure reducer. The required (small) quantity of CO2 required can thus be set reliably within a few minutes.
The CO2 Nano Flipper consists of highly transparent, break-proof plastic "Made in Germany" and can be combined with all standard CO2 supply systems. We recommend the Dennerle CO2 Nano Set. All CO2 hoses with an external diameter of 6 mm can be used.
Rule of thumb for the basic setting
Begin with approx. 1 bubble per minute per 10 l of aquarium water, which means approx. 3 bubbles per minute for a 30 l aquarium, for example.
The CO2 content can be checked most simply using the Crystal Line Mini CO2 long-term test. When the test shows a GREEN reading, the water contains exactly the right level of CO2.
The new Nano hose guide provides an elegant means of guiding the hose over the top edge of the aquarium without kinking.
Tunze Co2 Pressure Reducer 7077/3
Precision device with fine adjustment for standard CO2 cylinders, thread in keeping with German standard DIN 477 (US version with CGA 320 thread). To be mounted without tools; precise adjustment; two pressure gauges; pressure-relief valve. Made in Germany.
Dennerle CO2 Night Cut-off Valve Comfort
For magnificent plant growth, DENNERLE recommends a CO2 content in the aquarium of approx. 20 mg/l.
As certain correlations apply between CO2 content, carbonate hardness (CH) and pH value, the CO2 content in the water can be calculated according to a simple procedure:
Measure the carbonate hardness of your aquarium water.
Read the pH value which corresponds to the desired CO2 content from the table. You should set this pH value +/- 0.1 by adjusting the number of bubbles accordingly. Example: Carbonate hardness 4 °d, recommended pH 6.8 +/- 0.1.
The procedure is even simpler with the DENNERLE CO2 long-term test Correct + pH.
$18.00Dymax Base Soil series decreases the hardness of the water and lower the pH level to the degree at which most aquatic plants can consume nutrients and comfortably grow. The soil granules maintain the shape and density underwater security good circulation of water oxygen through the substrate. With Dymax Base Soil, growing difficult plants become easier and it is ideal for fishes demanding soft water.
