My DIY REACTOR!

http://i76.photobucket.com/albums/j3...e/DSC00349.jpg I built this reactor using a gravle vac and a filter pump. Inside the gravle vac theres a airstone to break down the co2 into tiny bubbles and then the pump forces the bubbles to mix with the water and down through the cotton and into the aqaurium. The cotton keeps bubbles from escaping.

Heres my DIY CO2 in use. I had to run the reactor vertical because it was to long for my tank. It seems to be running fine. Im too cheap to buy a nice sytem! http://i76.photobucket.com/albums/j3...e/DSC00369.jpg

Looks great! I always love building stuff myself - sometimes it works even better than the "nice systems"! Very creative - good job!
