DIY CO2 Question for a local solution! Help..
Hey guys , i have a 10g tank that i want to start co2 on. I did some research and found a DIY kit (the ghetto kit i call it .. 2L bottle, air hose, check valve.. using 2 cups of sugar and 1/4 teaspoon yeast)...
well it works.. meaning there is co2 exiting the airhose.. i read that the co2 needs to be difused (the DIY states to use a powerhead or airstone which i used).
But i don't feel that the co2 is being difused enough.
It comes out in large bubbles every 3-4 seconds and rise inediatly to the surface of the water.
I don't want to use a powerhead , i just don't want that much water movement in this tank.
What other options can i use to difuse the co2 better (and can i source it locally?)
Thanks in advance for the help
Edit: I live in Midtown Manhattan (willing to drive an hour in any direction)
This will also end up being a shrimp tank (once this scorching summer is over) So if anyone has any tips of a good beginner shrimp and advice would be helpful, thanks
