DIY Co2 slime in my diffuser?
While cleaning up my plant mess in the tank I noticed that there is a mucus/slimy type of gook in my diffuser (glass micro bubble thingy) and also on the white disk where the bubbles are released. What is this stuff? is is bad for my tank( i would assume yes)How to prevent it? No yeast sugar mixture has made in back up the tube so I am curious how this is happening!
I am running two bottles of diy Co2(one 2L and one 1 Gal ) that go into a single tube via a t connect which is then routed to a seperate bubble counter/overflow bottle. I would think that this gook would also be built up in the bubble counter as well since it also is the first to have contact with the bubbles but the counter is clean and clear. my mixture consists of 2 cups sugar, one packet yeast, tsp molasses, 1/4 teaspoon baking....the typical mix...nothing fancy. any insight?
