Neutro CO2 is a liquid source of carbon for the planted aquarium.
For those of you not familiar with it, carbon is essential for all healthy plant growth and can be provided via gas, or liquid. The liquid form is not as potent as the gas but is still very effective. It won't make your plants pearl (this is when you see O2 bubbles coming from the plant) but it will help them grow. Plants that have access to liquid carbon will do far better than those without.
In addition to this, if you over dose Neutro CO2, it can have a negative effect on algae (it helps reduce it). However you need to take care when overdosing, and increase it slowly. Perhaps 25% extra, then monitor the results. We do not recommend more than double dose.
It is also possible to spot treat plants or wood that have algae growing on them. Simply by using a pipette and extracting some Neutro CO2, squirt the carbon onto the plant or wood when it is outside of the water. Wait for 10 seconds then put it back into the water. You can also do this when performing a water change (it's easiest that way). But if you leave liquid carbon on for too long you will kill the plant.
Bottle sizes: Small = 500ml, Medium = 1000ml, Large = 2000ml, XLarge = 4000ml.
This bottle has a cap which measures 10ml. In order to dose you can pour directly into that or use one of our dispensing bottles (which is on the better together promotion on the right hand side of the screen).

Bought this as it was on deal, glad I did.

Great price for a good size container, it seems to be the same liquid CO2 I bought elsewhere, for the same price, but half the quantity! Swift delivery made the whole purchase worthwhile 10/10

An excellent product, but could really do with a proper dosing container as shown
Date Added: 11/05/2015 by David Harris
Great product so easy to apply the correct amount of carbon dioxide to your aquarium.
Date Added: 20/01/2015 by Darrell Taylor
I would have rated this 5 stars but what I ordered was the medium size in the handy dosing bottle and it arrived in a not so handy bottle without the easy dosing gauge. Come on AE, let us know if you're going to send something different, so that we still have a choice.

Great product cheaper than others but does the same job with a great measuring compartment.

Fast delivery as always. Just started using this along with my usual Neutro + so cant rate it yet.

Have been using this product for a while now and committed to the buy 2 get 1 free offer which happily resulted in Aqua Essentials sending me a 1L bottle (medium), a 2L bottle (Large) and a 500ml bottle (small) so I got a nice range of bottle sizes for future storage and an extra 500ml. I am very happy with the service I have received from this company so far and I'm only on my 3rd order. I also use the Neutro T fertilizers.

What a fantastic product I am using this in conjunction with Neutro +. I have only been using them for a short while and my plants are looking even greener and fuller than when they first arrived from AE. My Aponogeton Crispus has even flowered.
Date Added: 18/07/2014 by David Grubb
I got two of these as it was buy 2 get one free. Never received the free one but I have received an e mail saying I will get the offer. Unable to comment on the product as I haven't used it yet. Still have some easy carbo to finish first.

I have used Neutro CO2 in both my tanks for what seems like years. I dose with about 5ml a day in my 100 litre tank and just a splash in my 36 litre tank. A similar amount of home made trace element fertilizer is added every other day. My nitrate is fairly high so I add "maxi" fertilizer only rarely. My plants need pruning every month, I have no algae problem and the fish are thriving. Neutro CO2 seems the cheapest way of achieving this.

As in my past review of this product I can not praise it enough 5* used along with Neutro+ in a non-infused planted tank results are excellent my plants are healthy and growing quite large all in all great.

What can I say? The leaves on my anubias have started to turn a lighter green, and one is flowering. For the first time ever! What did I change? I added Neutro CO2 - that is all. Can't recommend highly enough!

Used together with Neutro+ in my newly set up pressurised co2 tank there is a real difference in the growth of my existing plants. Browning tips are now a lush green after only being used for 10days.

Date Added: 02/07/2013 by tom hill
Great product, as advised by Richard I have been using this with Neuto+ along side injected CO2 for 4 weeks now and have seen a huge improvement in plant growth. The difference was noticible within the first few days

After reading review about this product and getting honest advice from Aquariume essentials i purchased this item. This is the best product i have ever used, compared to other brands and it does exactly what it says. I would highly recommend this to anyone rather then buying so many bottles. "This is the Best from the Rest".

New tank, new plants from Aquaessentials! After a week or so they looked a bit sad and then I remembered reading about Neutro C02 and Neutro T. Ordered some and following the dosage. So far I'm very impressed with the results. The flagging plants have recovered and everything is growing well!!

Very nice product and it arrived promptly. Although due to some not so nice handling there was a lot of leak in the box- hopefully next time Aqua Essentials finds a bit better way to pack this item. It made a difference even after I started to use it.

If your new to planted tanks and unsure about CO2 then this product is for you. I have a 180 litre tank and put in 5 ml of the Neutro fertliser and 10ml of the Neutro CO2. The end results are that I have turned my limp and starving plants into a wonderful display and best of all the Neutro has virtually elimiated my algae. Excellent product and not forgetting to highlight that Aqau Essentials provide an excellent and quality service.
