Hagen introduces the Fluval CO2 Kit for providing planted tanks with a necessary carbon source. All plants need CO2, whether they are on land or in the water, and Fluval’s CO2 Kits ensure that planted aquariums get much-needed CO2. Because 40 to 50 percent of a plant’s dry weight is composed of carbon and all planted tanks are lacking in CO2, supplementation is necessary. The Fluval CO2 Kits make certain that this most important nutrient is available to plants to maintain vigorous, lush, and vibrant plant growth. The kits are available in two sizes that can accommodate a range of tanks up to 40 U.S. gallons and contain everything necessary for a successful setup, including a regulator valve, cartridge bracket, disposable CO2 cartridge, hose, and a CO2 diffuser. The larger kit, for planted aquariums from 15 to 40 U.S. gallons, also comes with a pressure gauge and a bubble counter. For more information, visit www.hagen.com.
