Thoughts on this system?

DIY CO2 Reactor for a Planted Aquarium - All

Saw this. Seems like a really really simple C02 generator that would work for a smaller tank. Thinking about adding this to a 15 gallon.

Thoughts or opinions? Would it work?

Using DIY CO2 (essentially sugar and yeast) is a common method to generate CO2 relatively inexpensively. However, with time, you may find that the costs and hassle are not worth it.

However, to answer your question, yes, it would work.

If it is not worth it, what is? I am changing my ways form having multiple aquariums to spending time on just one until I get it in fantastic shape.

A 5 lb CO2 tank and a pressurized setup. It gives you room to expand to any size aquarium, the most control, and the best bang for the buck in the long haul.
