Question DIY CO2 for 2.5G shrimp tank?

Im setting up a small 2.5G shrimp only tank and making HC my foreground in it. I am scetchy about CO2 in a shrimp tank but know that HC definately flourishes with CO2 so wanted to do a small DIY. I have made the 2L bottle ones before but never on a tank this small. Has anyone made a DIY CO2 for this small of a tank? What is the yeast/ sugar ratio? I know compressed is the way to go but dont want to spend the money on a 2.5G tank with 3 other tanks running also. So any help would be great. Thanks in advance!!!

Scroll down for the reactors. 10 dollar hagen elite mini (internal) filter would be nice.

Im definately going with the mini elite for my filter/ reactor. Thanks. Should i still go with a 2L DIY CO2? I was thinking that it might be a little much for the little tank.
