DIY CO2 over done???
Mixed a 3 liter bottle of DIY.
2 cups sugar, 1tsp baking soda, 1.25tsp dry yeast.
Activated yeast with 78 degree tank water.
Mixed all together and instant CO2?
This occurred 5 days ago mind you.
Using a needle valve fed to a DIY CO2 reactor.
CO2 has constantly been climbing and guppies are gasping for air.
Almost @ 60ppm of CO2 in a 40 gallon long.
Using the charts or the math they show the same.
3 liter bottle seems ready to bust using needle valve as restriction.
I have to gas the bottle off by opening to atmosphere occasionally.
Is this really possible with DIY CO2???
I have acquired a CO2 tank with regulators and ready to swap out.
I acquired materials thinking DIY would be minimal production.
KH of 8 and pH of 6.6 ppm of CO2 59.something.
Does this sound right???
New to CO2 in a planted tank.
