This CO₂ Reactor Set not only looks super cool but it also functions perfectly and creates pure CO₂ from a chemical reaction. After this chemical reaction has taken place in the cylinder the CO₂ gas is slowly and constantly released through a pressure regulator. The gas flow can be precisely adjusted with the adjustment knob and integrated bubble counter. The gas flow can be stopped at night with the solenoid which is included with the set and if you connect the solenoid to a domestic timer, you'll have your CO₂ coming on and off when your lights are on and off making the gas more economical.


The CO₂ Refills are available separately along with the Colombo Drop Checker (recommended) which allows you to monitor your CO₂ levels visually.

So it really does tick all the boxes. Looks good, works as expected and fun to make your own CO₂ in the comfort of your own home.



So if you are thinking about using pressurised CO₂ in your aquarium which will really turbo-boost your plant growth, consider the Colombo CO₂ Reactor Kit today. It's a lovely piece of kit, will look stylish in your cabinet and creating your own pure CO₂ is both easy and educational.

The bottle is made of stainless steel 314. Supplied with:


* Bottle holder
* pressure regulator
* solenoid valve
* bubble counter
* non-return valve
* outflow
* accessories and spare parts.

Note: The 2 components to create your carbon dioxide are not included with this set and need to be purchased separately - click here to see them. 


This kit stands approx 52cm tall when constructed (in case you wanted to know if it fits in your cabinet).

Columbo Co2 reactor

I am very pleased with this item .
The setup was not too difficult and I'm now producing a decent amount of Co2 which my plants love.
I will Say though the o ring on the needle valve was leaking which took me a while to figure out but the set comes with 2 spares so it wasn't too bad in the end.
This is a high quality product (faulty o ring aside ) that I would definitely recommend

Going to be a great investment!

I read through so many reviews in different co2 kits but nothing seemed to compare the colombo reactor kit! The facts about this is that yes you have to buy the chemical components separately, but one reaction can last you quite a while, ive only justbset this up and its over a week but the pressure gage hasnt lowered yet. But from research this is better for price! Also easiest set up ever! The diffuser is quite bif for my 30l tank but thats ok !

I ordered this for my 240L tank I have newly scaped (My first attempt at scaping). It also has fish and Amano shrimp. I'm using about 3 bubbles a sec.

I am very pleased with the product. I wanted a CO2 system that would be easy for a beginner and also one where I didn't have to keep buying disposable canisters. This DIY set up is perfect, the only worry I had was how often I would have to refill it. So far I'm on week 3 and still using the first mix, though I think it will need changing soon as the pressure is now quite low at around 5 (max at start was 20) I have the CO2 start up about 45 mins before my lights turn on and it shuts off about 30 mins before the lights go out.

I also purchased the reactor refills at the same time, you get 3 refills in the box and if i get 3 weeks from one set, then the whole box should last me about 9 weeks on my 240L set up. The refills are high quality Sodium Bicarbonate (baking soda) and Citric Acid, they are pre measured and basically, you just pour them into the empty cylinder, add water and screw on the regulator and that's it.

I would highly recommend this product.
