Can I have 2 diy co2 producers..?

29 gal 2-24watt HO bulbs 16in from sand surface. One 6,500k other 5,000k. Eco complete under sand. 3 juli cory catfish, and cherry shrimp. I have a diy co2 system that puts out about 1 bubble every 3-4 seconds on the bubble counter... Can i/should i hook up another diy co2 system up to it to put out twice as much? Would my plants benifit from this? Is there a chance it would be too much co2 and kill my fish? Any thoughts?

you can definitely go with more co2. I have less light than you do I think and I am putting out 2-3 bubbles per second in a pressurized system. You could go with lots more co2, I think it's pretty impossible to have too much diy co2, it's just not the same as pressurized quality.
