    In short. Ozone machine uses electrical current to charge a molecule and thats why its called ozone - O3. The sun does exactly the same thing in some or other way im no boffin. So there is no bottle required, you merely plug in the machine bro. ;)

    I run ozone, 2 hours a day, it runs into one of the airlines on my skimmer.

    Here's a pic of an Aquamedic one, but there are lots of other makes available

    A few weeks ago when Anthony Calfso visited Idol Marine, he was very positive about ozone. Best thing you can do to your tank. As it remove disolved particles, or break them up, giving clearer water, your light penetration is better.

    One point of caution he raised, make sure that your skimmer plastic do not react and de-generates due to the Ozone. Most skimmers cannot be used with ozone. So check that out.

    He runs his on a airstone, dumped into the sump first chamber. Not sure how and if he does the carbon filtering part.

    Here are some articles (courtesy of Randy Holmes-Farley from Reef Central) you best read and fully understand yourself. Ozone is not something one should use, if you don't fully understand how to use it and its affect on your system.
