diy co2 question

Hey everyone,
I have a question about diy co2. Say i have a 2L bottle of co2 and a 1L nutrafin bottle connected to the powerhead reactor could i use a 3L instead of the 2L and the 1L? will it produce the same amount of co2 as both the bottles combined? thanks in advance.

First of all, why so many tanks. You just have to prepare quantity for 3 litre instead of 2. What is the size of your tank. You can start your 2 litre every two weeks and Nutra fin the following week. Hope this help!

I have been using 3l bottles for a long time! Two of them are still connected to my 43gal tank. Larger bottle size = more CO2. Your calculation would be correct, 1l + 2l = 3l. To keep CO2 levels stable, it might be beneficial to have two bottles connected, so your current setup is good, or replace the Hagen thing with another 2l bottle so you have two 2l bottles which you could renew every 10 days or so.
