    I was wondering if anyone else has experienced the same problem. I always know when my CO2 is going to run out because a day or two before the bubblecounter starts bubbling like mad and my fish are gasping at the top of the water. Fortunately, the fix has been easy (raise outflow from the sump to give a lot of surface chop) and I have always been around.

    Do all systems do this towards the end or perhaps do I need to buy another regulator?

    Thanks

    My Milwaukee regulator does the same thing. I think it is characteristic of the cheap regulators most of us use. You could view that as a good feature - it warns you that you are about to run out of CO2. Yeah, so it kills a few fish, nothing is perfect.;)
