    I m using NISSO CO2 SYSTEM. They come in different. Mine is the smaller one i bought. model 1200. As for Gas type, I dont know how its work. And i heard its troublesome. Have to refuse once in awhile. So I bought what i m using now. So far so good.

    pressurised gas is only troublesome if you don't have an electronic solanoid.
    where you have to adjust it by turning the main valve.

    i prefer it over using tablets and diy co2

    Better not, they release some other thing to the shrimp tank, in process of releasing CO2.

    I would have to agree with many here, pressuried canister CO2 is the best way.

    I have never used CO2 tablets before, so I can't say much about them. I don't know how effective they are nor if it works and as wifi mentioned, whether or not it releases other byproducts. If you do decide to supplement CO2, the best way by far is pressurized CO2 with a CO2 regulator, solenoid and bubble counter. A 5lb canister will go a very long way. Your next best option is DIY CO2. I have done DIY CO2 before and it is much more bothersome than pressurized since you have to restart the CO2 (yeast culture) every few weeks to get the most out of the CO2. With pressurized, you just set it and leave until you run out of CO2 in the canister.
