what kind of co2 bottle? little pellet gun cartridges, paintball, #5, or yeast and sugar pre packaged?

you could allways make up some diy co2.
you could buy a bottle of excell (co2 liquid substitute)
you will liely experience some algae issues with 0 co2 for a week, and prob some stunted plant grwoth.
