DIY CO2 counter question
I am trying a small DIY CO2 system on my 40 breeder. The reactor is a 20 oz bottle and I'm using yeast/sugar. I could't make the small bubble counter I saw, so I repurposed a botched cap I was going to use as a brine shrimp hatchery...so what I'm using is a liter bottle between the solution bottle and tank.
Like So: (see image)
The bottle on the left takes CO2 output from my solution bottle and simply lets it bubble in the bottle for counting. My question is will this bottle dissolve and remove the CO2 before it goes to the tank?
Or will the water in the second bottle get saturated, letting CO2 into my tank?
I'm still trying to find out how much to use, so I'm going with 1-2 bubbles per second.
