du3ce you need to put your difuser several inchest below the power head so that way the co2 will come through the suction hose of the power head and get spread out in the tank.

Diana The yeast and sugar generates enough pressure to diffuse through an average bubbler, not a super fine one, though.

I do not see how to hook up an air pump to this. How are you doing that?

CO2 solution works, but not with air pump!

So this is my first DIY (or otherwise) experience with CO2 for planted tanks. I know my solution is working because my tubing will spit out bubbles, however once I try to hook it to my diffuser...a power head, my CO2 goes back several inches and just sits in the tubing. Do I need a different power head or is there an issue with my pressure or..?
