Diy co2: Help on mixture
Im having some trouble with my co2, hope someone can help me out!
It's a basic setup, just some airline tubing with a check valve running into a airstone. I drilled a small hole in the top of a 2 litre bottle and just poked it through and sealed it off. I tried a straight valve(plastic) first but it kept leaking. The design I have now is air tight.
Ive tried 2 mixtures, one was cups of sugar, 2 tsp of yeast and 1/2 tsp of baking soda, which works but not overly well ( little bubble production)
The second mixture I've tried was 3/4 cups of sugar 2 tsp of yeast and 1/2 tsp of baking soda, which did work somewhat but I broke the bottle it was in.
I was wondering if anyone has developed a flawless formula they are willing to share!
Btw the tank is fish less hence the lack of a bubble counter and diffusor
