CO2 packs by Natural Plant Systems. Did not come with directions!

Ok so I am sure ya'll are going to say I wasted my money but I found this 3 pack of CO2. It comes with 3 activators and 3 stabalizers but no directions. I have no idea what to do with them. Do I pour each packet into the water or something?
I have a 55 gallon

Check the date on them, mine were DOA. Easier and cheaper to substitute 1/2 tsp. of baking yeast.

Whatever you do... do not put this stuff into your tank... this is for a fermentation system

I'm guessing its an easy way for them to re-package sugar and yeast and sell it

Actually It's Yeast and.. that stuff I can't think of atm, it's on the tip of my tongue D: ..but it makes DIY last longer.. baking soda? idk.

It goes with a little canister that you add that stuff to, and sugar, and voila, non messy, don't have to look at, well sealed DIY Co2.

.. I got it because I wanted the diffuser that came with it and the canister was nicer to look at then an old soda bottle , and it was onsale at petsmart. rofl.
