The UNS CO2 Pro cylinder can be refilled at any local gas or brewery supply retailer. Before use, make sure the Pro Cylinder is professionally filled and the valve is closed. Next, firmly install our recommended UNS CO2 Pro regulator onto the cylinder and make sure all regulator valves are closed, including the UNS manifold block(s). Fully open the Pro Cylinder valve. Next, set the main valve on the UNS CO2 Pro regulator to ~35 psi and adjust the needle valve on the UNS manifold block to suit your needs. Once set, there is no need to adjust the Pro Cylinder valve until the CO2 is exhausted and the CO2 regulator reads 0 psi.

CO2 reserves and depletion rate may vary depending on various external factors such as usage, aquarium plant needs 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 elements are out of balance, algae growth or plant dieback results. Introducing CO2 into a planted aquarium allows plants to thrive and grow more efficiently, while giving them the ability to outcompete algae for nutrients.
