co2 Basics?

I have NO IDEA where to begin with using co2, let alone DIY.
I've got a little 3 gallon acrylic I'd like to experiment with, but I just don't know where to start.

Any links, info, etc would be appreciated.

there are many youtube videos out there that show perfectly how to do it right.
unfortunatly i cant get the sugar and yeast proprtions right to have much succes.
I would type in on the search bar in youtube "DIY co2 diffuser".
hope it helped

Thanks jordan. How much does a co2 system cost anyway?

Hey Splendid - for your small tank, I would suggest the Fluval Mini 88 pressurized complete CO2 set-up. It will cost you at least $100., or somewhat more, I believe, compared to $300. or more for a full-fledged system geared for much larger tanks.
Google the Fluval site for CO2 systems.
