Aqualine Bubble Counter
Read this before purchasing.
Overall I would say that this is not a bad product. But there are a few things to know before buying. 1) It's flimsy. Don't try to open it to put water in it. Broke one of mine. Instead "suck" water into it. Put the intake tube in water and suck on the blue elbow. The water goes in with no problem. It's much easier that way. And you won't risk breaking anything. Not to mention that black cap is a bear to get out. 2) I would not recommend using this with an UpAqua inline co2 diffuser. The diffuser requires too much pressure to allow co2 to pass through. The back pressure will cause the top to pop up and leak. If you get this bubble counter I would say use it with one of those "in-tank" diffusers with the ceramic stones.

This product is not worth the money. It is poorly constructed and the airline connection broke the first time I disconnected the CO2 line. The suction cups that are supposed to hold the unit to the aquarium would not hold for more than a minute.

Do Not Buy
I have owned two of these bubble counters. I returned the first one and threw away the second one. They leak CO2.

I too received this bubble counter with a co2 system. I like the rest of the system, but this seems to be the one flaw. It loses water too quickly, which would be fine, I can add water once a week. Problem here is you can't get the top off or back on easily enough. I just broke mine trying to put it all back together again. I definately won't be spending $30+ on another one of these. There needs to be a better system, I may get creative & see if I can design a better one.
