There are two basic requirements for plants to grow through photosynthesis; nutrients and light.

The most important nutrient for plant growth is carbon. Since carbon dioxide (CO2) is abundant in the atmosphere, plants simply draw their carbon directly from CO2 in order to photosynthesize and grow. In an aquarium, CO2 levels are naturally very low and without any supplementation, submerged aquatic plants will not be able to grow properly. When CO2 is a limiting factor, plants cannot fully utilize all the available light to photosynthesize. This can allow algae to grow and compete with the plants for nutrients, further stunting plant growth. By introducing CO2 into the aquarium, plants can achieve healthy growth faster and therefore outcompete algae.

The CO2 regulator is one of the most important aspects of any CO2 system. The pressure in a gas cylinder can be over 700 psi which is way too high for safe usage in any application. The regulator plays the crucial role of allowing just enough CO2 to dispense safely through the airline tubing, through the diffuser, and into your aquarium.

Features:
  • CGA320 thread connection stem adapter included (fits onto standard US CO2 gas tanks)
  • Built-in solenoid allows you to turn the CO2 supply on and off during photoperiod
  • Compatible with the UNS Disposable CO2 cartridge.
  • Adjustable knob allows the ability to adjust working pressure
  • Comes with an included Paintball CO2 adapter and Bubble Counter!

IMPORTANT: Due to shipping hazards and regulations, cylinders are NOT filled prior to shipment. Filling should be performed at your local, certified source once received.

Essential basic for a pressurized CO2 system.
Designed to be used with Dual Stage UNS Mini CO2 Regulator. 

The UNS Paintball CO2 Cylinder is an essential item for implementing a pressurized CO2 system in your planted aquarium. Designed to be paired with the Ultum Nature Systems Dual Stage Mini CO2 Regulator, this CO2 paintball cylinder lends a clean aesthetic and functional performance. The unit features an on/off valve that eliminates the need for pin valves, preventing accidental tank dumps during installation. This feature makes this cylinder a more beginner friendly option and is a great start for those who are new to CO2 injection in planted tanks. 

CO2 reserves and depletion rate may vary depending on various external factors such as usage, aquarium plant requirements, and tank size. 

Why CO2 injection is important in a planted tank: 3 main factors contribute to optimal growth of aquatic plants. These factors include, nutrients, light and carbon dioxide (CO2). If any of these are unbalanced, the results are algae growth or the withering of plants. The introduction of CO2 in a planted aquarium allows plants to thrive and grow more efficiently, while also giving them the ability to outcompete algae for nutrients. No matter what type of planted aquarium setup you have, we recommend CO2 injection for better aquarium plant growth.
