 I'm  from  Chembur.  
 
 Its  not  safe  at  2%,   I  think  the  medical  opinion  is  that  if  you  can  smell  rotten  apples,  then  it  is  not  safe.  You  can  certainly  get  a  good  whiff  of  rotten  apples  from  2%  solution...
 
 I  had  a  lot  of  trouble  getting  my  setup  as  well  mainly  because  not  many  people  in  Mumbai  had  attempted  to  do  it  locally  but  now  we  are  all  set.  Very Happy  
 
 I  felt  that  buying  the  complete  setup  was  too  expensive  for  me,  I'm  more  of  a  DIY  guy.  Getting  individual  components  makes  it  much  cheaper  and  anyway,  its  not  rocket  science.  Smile
 If  you  have  the  dough,  I  thnk  Nautilus  at  Bandra  can  set  it  up  for  you  and  then  of  course,  the  good  folks  on  IAH  can  ship  to  Mumbai  as  well  from  Bangalore...
 
 Let  me  know  if  you  want  to  go  the  "set  it  up  yourself"  way  and  I'll  point  you  to  the  locations  where  you  can  get  the  components  and  help  you  on  getting  them  together  and  working.
 
 There  is  an  excellent  illustrated  thread  by  Trevor  on  setting  up  your  CO2  system  on  IAH  somewhere....
 
 Regards,
 Venkat

 Ive  been  to  nautilus,  but  their  over  all  sales  sucks  big  time..they  told  me  that  if  I  ordered  plants  they  would  take  15  days  to  deliver..  talk  about  taking  your  own  sweet  time...
 
 Is  the  set  it  up  yourself  way  safe?  I  mean  it  is  a  pressurized  cylinder  isnt  it?
 
 BUT  that  being  said  im  all  ears..  so  where  do  I  get  the  individual  components  from?  and  how  do  I  put  em  together?  Smile
 
 Thanks

 After  you  go  through  the  aqbove  referenced  thread,  you  can  get  the  following  components
 
 Regulator  -  Eagle  brand  direct  from  the  manufacturer  in  Delhi.  they  will  ship  it  to  you  for  a  paltry  amount.  I  guess  you  can  also  use  the  local  CO2  regulators  available  at  most  pneumatic  stores  but  I  went  with  Eagle  because  thats  what  all  the  folks  in  bangalore  use.
 
 PU  Tubing,  Needle  valves  and  all  connectors  -  you  can  get  them  at  Chakala-  Andheri.  There  might  be  some  stores  in  your  locality  as  well.
 
 Cylinder  -Metro  gas  at  andheri  (sakinaka)  will  supply  everything  yu  need.  A  little  more  expensive  to  refill  from  him  since  he  uses  medical  grade  CO2  but  you  can  always  get  it  refilled  from  your  local  Welding  shops.
 
 Any  other  queries,  yu  can  PM  me  or  open  a  fresh  thread  and  you  will  get  more  than  enough  information...  IAH  rocks  Thumb Up

 Venkat

 Thanks  Guys  for  your  help...
 
 Trevor:  I  found  those  pictures  informational,  but  is  there  any  thread  that  shows  you  assembling  the  components  via  pictures..  that  would  be  a  perfect  DIY  tutorial...

 Thanks  Trevor   Thumbs Up  
 
 You  mentioned  that  co2  when  dissolves  in  water  forms  carbonic  acid..  know  this  might  sound  stupid  to  you,  but  can  we  achieve  the  same  by  adding  carbonic  acid  to  the  water  in  a  controlled  fashion??  just  a  thought...

 Hi  Satyajeet,
 Guess  there  are  several  ways  of  adding  CO2  to  your  aquarium  like  DIY  Yeast,CO2  cylinder,Soda  maker  based  systems,CO2  tablets,CO2  electric  device  using  plates  &  electrodes...but  always  in  long  run  the  CO2  cylinder  based  setup  mentioned  by  Trevor  in  above  post  holds  effective  &  economic  than  most  other  methods  though  the  initial  cost  this  system  is  little  high!  Very Happy
