I started this DIY co2 on my 5gal..........
:lol: So far nothing. Come on, I want Jack and the beanstalk effect here, like overnight! :lol:

But seriously, could someone tell me what to watch for, besides using water parameters, so that I will know the plants are actually getting benefits from it.

Now I took it back to cave days here, so I am not using a fancy DIY reactor yet, since I have no powerhead and such. But it might be coming soon in the future. So picture, airline tubing, silicone, bottle, and airstone.
I am fairly positive I have crashed the PH in the tank too.
Ok don't laugh, this is the mix that I am using now
1/2 tsp yeast
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 cup sugar
7 1/2 cup warm water
------------------------------------------------
My friend suggested a smaller bottle and an adjustment to the ingredients.
Guess I am doing overkill right now Somehow I am not surprised, since I rarely get it right on the first go.
But hey I am trying!

Anyway any suggestions modifications and etc are welcome and appreciated
