this may sound really stupid, but ive read up on "DIY C02" and im interested in giving it ago...but how does it work?
sure i kno how to make it with a 2ltr soda bottle, air tubing, yeast and sugar ect ect...
but what i wanna kno is after fermenting the sugar and yeast together, how does the gas created make its way into the tank?
my theory is that when the gas is created, its forced up threw the air tubing and into the air stone inside the fish tank, thus being released...am i correct?
...this is wer i get confused....for an air stone to work the pump must be plugged in right....so how does this work with DIY C02? does it still have to be attached to the main air pump itself and be plugged in? how can the bubbles be released from the air stone if its not plugged in?
because if not, how can i turn my "DIY C02" set-up off at night to stop myself from killing my fish?
this has really confused me lol
do you have to plug anything in to power diy c02?
please somebody explain to me how this works and how i can turn it off if i want too.
coz surley i cnt just pull out the air tubing and stick it bck in as an when i please...can i?
that wud continue using the c02 and sending it into my air space..i.e my bedroom.
HOW CAN I TURN IT OFF IF ITS JUST AIR TUBING ATTACHED TO A COKE BOTTLE?
arrrr so confused...and my lfs guy was no help what so ever the silly twat!
please help me
