    DefaultTropica Nano C02 System

    Anyone have any experience using the pressurized Tropica Nano C02 System? Can it be modified to use other refillable tanks once the small disposable tank is used up? I have a fairly small tank so I'm thinking this might be a good option rather than a full seize C02 setup.

    Plant Growth System Nano is a desirable solution for precise CO2 dosage in small aquariums. - Tropica Aquarium Plants


    Thanks in advance.

    I was thinking about this for my 6 gallon, but decided to go with a 20 oz paintball set up. It lasts 9 months at 1 bps and I think the tropica would only last a couple of months.
    I may be wrong, but I think you are stuck with getting their tanks and can't hook it up to different types of bottles.

    I'm very interested in this product as well. Hopefully someone has some insight.

    Hey ray,

    I have a 6 gallon as well, what type of paintball co2 setup did you end up building?

    I went with a aquatek regulator with a guardian 20 oz from a local paintball store. I did buy the tropica 3in1 diffuser that is used with that nano co2 system to save space.

    Aquateck mini or regular? Any other pieces I would need other than c02 hosing? I like the Tropica 3/1 as well with my tiny tank, the regulator would pay for itself as those Tropica refill tanks are expensive.

    i went with the mini because its compatible with the paintball. You dont need to get an adapter this way. The regulator came with airline tubing, but i've read that it can leak co2, but i don't really care too much about that.

    I believe it comes with the hose also. They work well. We run one on the plant tank at the shop.

    Awesome, aquateck mini, a paintball canister and a 3/1 and I'm set!

    Where are people in the Vancouver area refilling C02 tanks, any idea how much a 24 oz paintball canister would cost to refill? It seems more of the paintball places are switching to HPA. Thanks!

    Anyone use the Tropica Nano C02 system and prefer it over a paintball system?
