Phone pics of my diy co2 :)

Switching from excel to diy co2 . Just finished my set up and its working pretty good.

Used a mix of 2 1L bottles with 1 cup of sugar and 1/4 tsp yeast in each.

So now im keeping an eye on my ph and kh levels.

Hows it looking? Any advice or suggestions?

You will never regret it if you get some of these check valves: and install one close to each bottle, so you can refill a bottle without dumping the CO2 from the other bottle as you are doing it. Also install one as near the diffuser as you can, so tank water can't flow back to the bottles. I'm using them in my DIY CO2 system with no problems yet (4 months).
