Rex's DIY Co2 Reactor built

Hello all,
I just built Rex's DIY C02 Reactor. Before, I was useing one Hagen Ladder with three 2 Lt bottle's. I had 29 ppm c02. Now I have 72 ppm c02 the next day (am) after installing it. What a difference. I had never had anything over 30ppm. So I guess now I can remove one of the bottle's or cut back on the yeast sugar mixture. Also, I can have less clutter in my tank. Great Idea Rex.

Joe

29 & 50 gallon - High Tech C02 enriched.

29ppm to 72ppm I would keep a real close eye on the PH because that huge of a swing in Co2 might make a huge PH swing and be deadly to the fish.

Yes I know, I checked the PH and it was 6.8 on sat and 6.4 today at noon. The fish seem to be ok so far. I might turn my airstone on to see if I can lower it a bit until my co2/yeast settles down a bit.
