Your Diy recipe?
Can I have your diy co2 recipe? I'm hooking back up my diy co2 and want to know what works best for you.

I use this recipe, minus the baking soda.

I run three 64oz juice bottles into a 12oz Gatorade drip/snot bottle, then into the intake of my fluval fx5 on my 125. It's not much, and I just upgraded from one to three bottles about a week or two ago, not enough time to tell a difference yet.

For 2L bottle: 4 tablespoon of sugar + half teaspoon of yeast + half teaspoon of baking soda

For 2 liter bottle, I use 2 cups of sugar, 1/2 tsp of bread machine yeast, 1/2 tsp of baking soda. I fill the 2 L bottle up to just past where it necks down towards the cap.

In a 1-liter bottle: half- to two-thirds full with warm water, add 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/2 tsp of yeast. It's just that simple. Lasts about 2 weeks. Start a bottle, then a week later start another, a week after that replace the first bottle, etc.

Thanks I'll try them out.

2 liter bottle I used 2 1/2 cups sugar filled to the brim, 1/4 tsp yeast & one energy pill. Don't ask why i figured it wouldn't hurt to throw something random as i was running two bottles. I got a little over 3 weeks

Aren't "Energy" pills and drinks mostly caffein? Are caffein and yeast compatible?

R.sok 11-20-2012 09:39 AM

Idk. But here is a link to the pill i dropped in the bottle.

My fish, shrimp & plants don't seem to mind
