I missed the part where it says it measures CO2 directly not through pH. hmmmm...it calibrates via atmospheric CO2. Does this use a probe intended for air CO2 ppm testing? Does this work in water? Air quality/CO2 meters are in this price range.

Please report back...i'm a little more curious now that I saw it measures CO2 directly. I would compare it to other methods of indirectly measuring CO2 like the pH/KH chart and see how well they align.

Hopefully this will be approved soon: posted 9/29

I have seen this on another forum. It looks cool, I just don't like the fact that is has to sit on top of the tank. It's a built in controller so that's a bonus too, it'll control your solenoid for you. Equipment like this, and other hobby grade co2 meters, will take a lot of the guess work out of co2 for planted aquariums and make it easier to keep much healthier and more beautiful plants.

I made a comment on it somewhere/some forum.

I'm not impressed.

I bought one as well.

there will be a remote probe. the great thing imho is that the size will be "pH probe"-size (oxyguard co2 probe is much larger)

I know that Tim also owns a oxyguard co2 meter and that he was satisfied with the OCO in comparison with the oxyguard co2 meter.

The response time of the sensor is around 3-4 minutes, which is in my experience is bit faster than the oxyguard co2 meter.
