Yes, I would recommend this.
Ideal for hands-on low demand systems.
Pros: Sleek and simple
Cons: Unable to turn on/off automatically
This co2 is great for what it is. You turn it on, you turn it off, no solenoid or automatic timer, but it’s still just as easy to operate- if you remember! I use this on a small shrimp tank and I’ve no issues so far. Since the co2 is unable to turn off automatically before the lights shut off on your tank, I would suggest running it at a lower bubble rate than you might for one that could turn off automatically. For a low demand tanks this is an inexpensive and easy alternative to a pressurized setup with solenoid/timer and better overall than a bio/yeast co2 reactor. It also looks pretty cool hanging from the side of a rimless tank.
