 Hi,
 
 Iam  exploring  on  various  co2  options  for  my  first  planted  tank  of  45cm  L  ,  35cm  w,  35cm  H  which  if  of  ~  40L  capacity.
 
 Do  you  think  pressurized  co2  would  be  an  overkill  for  this  small  size?  Iam  considering  pressurized  co2  because  of  ease  of  use  unlike  the  diy  co2.
 
 Iam  thinking  to  grow  carpet  plants  in  it.
 
 Can  someone  please  suggest  if  this  is  a  good  option.
 
 How  about  buying  these  from  the  below  online  stores  as  shown  below,  which  costs  around  8k  for  an  advanced  co2  kit  with  solenoid.etc.   Also,  how  easy  it  is  to  refill  the  cylinder  in  hyderabad  and  cost  of  refilling  for  a  1kg  cyclinder.

 It  is  worth  investing  in  a  pressurized  co2  kit.
 
 ONE  BIG  PIECE  OF  ADVICE:
 
 IF  YOU  ARE  GETTING  A  REFURBISHED  CYLINDER,  ASK  FOR  PRESSURE  TEST   CERTIFICATE  and  CHECK  MANUFACTURING  DATE.
 
 DONT  BUY  CYLINDER  IF  ITS  OLDER  THAN  15  yrs.

 
 month  and  year  of  MANUFACTURE  is  stamped  on  the  cylinder.  IF  the  paint  is  so  much  that  it  is  not  visible,  chances  are  you  are  getting  a  scrapped  cylinder  that  was  given  a  paint  job.  I  learnt  it  the  hard  way  and  lost  money  when  my  refiller  refused  to  refill  the  cylinder  telling  me  its  very  old  and  dangerous.  I  had  him  remove  the  valve  and  then  sold  it  as  scrap  so  that  it  does  not  find  its  way  back  into  the  market.

 I  have  used  it  successfully  on  a  much  smaller  8G/30  litre  tank,  so  you  should  be  fine.
 In  my  knowledge,  a  pressurized  Co2  is  the  best  thing  you  can  get  for  your  planted  tank  other  than  right  lights.  
 I  would  suggest  you  also  get  a  good  co2  drop  checker  (look  up  ebay.in)  to  tell  you  the  co2  levels  in  the  tank.

 Hi,
 
 There  is  nothing  called  overkill  in  a  tank  unless  you  follow  the  correct  level,  you  can  even  keep  co2  for  25cm  tank  Thumb Up  only  thing  you  need  to  adjust  the  outflow  correctly  according  to  your  tank  size  best  co2  drop  checker,  in  your  case  co2  will  come  for  longer  period  to  fill  it.
 
 Like  preetam  said  try  to  get  new  co2  just  find  co2  dealers  and  filling  stations  they  will  have  small  tank  2kg,3kg,4kg  and  all,  if  you  interested  in  DIY  you  can  build  your  own  regulator  with  dual  gauge  and  solenoid  all  together  wont  even  cross  4-5k  in  total.
 
 If  you  need  help  will  dismantle  mine  and  will  show  you  how  to  fix  one  by  one.  it's  so  easy  to  build  your  own  co2  only  thing  you  need  to  get  co2  cylinder,  take  your  time  and  go  and  ask  welding  shops  were  they  refill  the  tank  and  goto  that  place  because  most  of  the  companies  will  have  oxygen,nitrogen  and  co2  fillings  and  cylinders  for  sale.
