    No have not tried Chubb, tried Capital Gas, Afrox and a few other smaller gas guys in PMB but with no luck.

    Welcome Itsme.

    I don't have a CO2 bottle so can't really help you. Try Chubb Fire or maybe one of the other Fire places, Firequip, Fire Alert etc.

    Sorry I couldn't be more help. Maybe phone Pets World and ask them, surely they must use CO2 with the amount of freshwater plants they keep.

    CO2 Refill available in Durban

    OK so there is a guy by the name of Mike in Durban - his company is MIH Gas - Cyprus Rd off Old Durban North Road - 0315693164 (open from 07h30 - 12h00) He says bring the canister into him early, will fill whilst you wait. AWESOME

    He does the refilling for a number of the bigger Marine Stores in Durban. no one in PMB that I can find. Looks like the PMB guys are going to have to travel to the beach!

    I would prefer food grade, but we have to use what we can get.

    I use a Calcium Reactor. So if you want to use one you will need the gas.

    A CaRx works GR8, don't worry about adding Ca,Mg and ALK. I find it just helps keep parameters more stable.
