I was looking at my daughter's asthma medication nebulizer the other day, and wondering if somehow the nebulizer parts could be used to mix co2 into the tank water. This is not a hand held spray nebulizer, it is a dictionary sized machine that plugs into the wall and pumps air through a silicone tube and then through a chamber that holds the liquid medicine, which is then nebulized so she can breathe the medicated mist. It kind of looks like a futuristic hookah pipe. Whenever she has to get a treatment at the doctors office, they have to open a new package of the silicone tubing, pipe, chamber and mouthparts. The nurse can't reuse that same set of stuff on another patient so she just lets me keep it. As a result I have a few of these set ups and I think that they have planted tank DIY potential.
I already checked and the standard tubing fits right onto an aquarium air pump and it all works together and blows air underwater.
I was wondering if the medicine chamber could be filled with liquid coz and then nebulized into the plant water?
Are there any moderators or anyone really handy with this diy stuff that I could send one of these sets to that would be interested in experimenting with it?
