This device and its consumable CO2 cartridges are not intended for use by persons (including children) with slightly impaired physical and mental capacities, unless they have been given supervision or instruction concerning the use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety. Children should always be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance.
Do Not use for any purpose other than as described below.
CO2 cartridge is not for use with other compressed air devices such a seltzer bottles, tire inflators or air guns.
Make sure that the Regulator Valve is closed (knob valve turned fully clockwise).
Thread the Regulator Valve onto the CO2 Cartridge and hand tighten until the Valve pierces the Cartridge for a snug fit. Place CO2 Cartridge with Regulator Valve in the Bracket.
To connect the Regulator to the Diffuser:
Unscrew and remove the Clamping Nut on the side of the Regulator. Thread one end of the Airline Tubing Hose through the Clamping Nut. Push Airline Tubing Hose onto the Regulator fitting and then screw the knob back onto the Regulator. Hand tighten.
Push the other end of the Airline Tubing Hose onto the fitting of the CO2 Diffuser located at the top of the Diffuser.
Hook CO2 Cartridge onto the outside of your aquarium.
Place CO2 Diffuser vertically inside your aquarium and secure against the glass using the provided suction cups. Note: Areas with higher water movement will cause CO2 to dissolve faster.
Once everything is set up, slowly open the Regulator Valve until both chambers of the Diffuser are filled with CO2. As soon as this happens, close the Regulator Valve. Note: Filling the Diffuser twice a day is sufficient for nano aquariums up to 15 gallons.
Once the CO2 Cartridge becomes completely empty, it must be removed and replaced. Before doing so, make sure that the Regulator Valve is closed. The CO2 Cartridge provided with this kit is disposable and recyclable. Therefore, please dispose of it responsibly. To ensure proper performance of the system, it is recommended to use only Fluval replacement CO2 Cartridges. To replace CO2 Cartridge, follow steps 1, 2, 4 and 6 of the above installation instructions and make sure to release remaining C02 inside diffuser reservoir before refilling with CO2.
The two basic requirements for healthy aquarium plants are light and proper carbon dioxide levels. Installing a CO2 system is essential to prevent low CO2 levels and to maintain active plant growth. Learn more here.
Every organic molecule of every living organism is predominantly carbon based. Given this simple fact, it becomes clear why carbon dioxide plays a pivotal role in the planted aquarium. Greg Morin, President/CEO, Seachem Laboratories, Inc. explains.
