Well here's my question, which I feel is related: in my blue ram tank, I run DYI CO2. I'm constantly fighting that white, snot-like, cottony buildup on the hagen ladder, and now the eheim diffuser. I was hoping a proper gas separator would fix the problem, but it hasn't. I don't think it's alcohol vapors but something in the yeast that's 'feeding' this mucus stuff...which by all accounts is totally harmless to the fish.
