Green Leaf Aquarium Supplies

Looking at setting up a calcium reactor and was wonder if anyone uses any of the CO2 packages from them.

I have not used one, but all the ones they sell use high quality parts that will work infnitely better than the typical cheap-o hobby ones you see sold. The more expensive the needle valve, the better it is....that is arguable the most important piece.

Another to consider is the carbon doser from AquariumPLants. Great electronic regulator with a full 3 year warranty. Rock solid set and forget.

I can't comment on the Green Leaf setup, but I have the Carbon Doser and regulator from Aquarium Plants and it plain just works as advertised. There are many discussions about the Aquarium Plants units if you do a little searching here.

From green leaf? Any of the ones that have the smith body. ACTH any of the ones they sell will have no problems it only comes down to your budget.

The one from aquarium plants is this one:
