Efficiently dissolves CO2 into aquarium water

This fully adjustable, power driven, super compact CO2 reactor will simply and efficiently maintain the desired level of CO2 in a wide range of planted aquariums. The turbulent flow CO2/water interface inside the reactor ensures almost complete dissolving of available CO2 while non-dissolvable gases are gently vented to the water surface.

  • Adjustable flow 250 l/h (65 gal/h) pump
  • Super compact design 9.5 x 4 x 5.5 cm (3.75” x 1.6” x 2.2”)
  • Dissolves CO2 at flow rates of up to 180 bubbles per minute
  • Suitable for planted aquariums 40 to 500 Liters (10–125 gal)

doesn't work

Tried it for 3 months, but it will not dissolve the CO2 properly: Large bubbles escape and waist CO2. tried everything to make it work as described in the 'manual'. Surprised by other (positive) reviews.

Works well

Works great, no problems with setup. Makes the bubbles so small you can barely see them.

Red Sea CO2 system

Works very well with solenoid and timer. Saves on CO2. Reactor was a replacement for my old one.

compact, works well

I like that this unit is compact. However, being small, the unit cannot handle a high bubble rate. About 1 bubble per second is the max or else the CO2 in the chamber gets to large that a lot is ejected.

Red Sea C02 Reactor 500

Hi Im from the U.K.Where you cant buy the C02 Reactor 500 on its own. I was recommended Marine Depot from Gina's Aquarium Supply because they do not ship to the U.K. I received the reactor within 5 Working days it now has been working for just over two weeks I would recommend this reactor 500 because it dissolves all the C02 in the vortex chamber then into your fish tank instead of being vented on the water surface. Now I shall look what else I can buy in the U.S.A and can’t get in the U.K.

Great Product

I like the fact that it is small and compact so it is easy to tuck it away. One improvement would be if they could change the design to have the cord come out the top of the unit.
