It's working! It's wooorrrkiiing!!!
Please forgive my excitement.... I just set up my first DIY CO2 rig... didn't think anything was gonna happen.... it just looked like a jug of cloudy water.... so I sat down on the sofa with book.... an hour later.... BUBBLES! I couldn't believe it!
I used a standard mix of 2 cups of sugar and a half-teaspoon of yeast in a 2-litre bottle. How long can I expect this mixture to "burn"?
I'm temporarily feeding the CO2 into the filter intake while I wait for my diffuser to arrive from Hong Kong. Is it safe to run it this way for a couple weeks, or am I risking serious damage to my filter?
