For a tank that size you would be much better off going with pressurized Co2.
I used to use 3 bottles of DIY co2 for a 100 gal.and even that wasn't enough to have the impact I was looking for,but if you must ,you would need at least 4 large(1-2 gal)bottles to generate enough Co2 in a 110 gal. tank,and then monitoring it so you never run out of co2 is another problem but can be accomplished .
So as I mentioned before,you will end up going pressurized which I am sure you are probably fully aware of.

Not to mention with the amount you'll spend on sugar and yeast that you'll go through in a year, you could probably buy most of the pressurized parts.
