Which DIY for 20 long?

all, I will be building a DIY CO2 injector for my tank. I'm wondering which recipes lasted for a while or created better CO2 amounts etc. What is the difference between ladders, bubble counters, and airstones, and how many and what kind of bottles (soda, juice etc) should i use.

I would like to hear from former/current 20g owners who have DIY CO2 so i can compare to my tank.

Links to threads and links greatly welcome.

I think I might try to read that again in a while...

When I used DIY CO2 I found that my batches lasted longer if I put a pinch of baking soda in with 2 cups sugar, 1 tsp yeast (had good luck with the active dry) mix in luke warm water, then fill with cold water. I used 2 liter bottles but I like the idea of using juice bottles that alot of people say for the stability.
