There are CO2 fizz tablets that release CO2 as they dissolve. This is just temporary, however, as the CO2 will get outgassed into the atmosphere realatively quickly.

I would either go with Excel or a type of injection OC2, whether it be DIY or pressurized.

I have not heard of such a thing, I would be inclined to use the BS buzzer on the tablet idea.

There is one from Sera. Never tried it but one member from another forum admitted it seems to work. I've seen that product in their articles(Sera). It seems to suit only small tanks though unless you have enough money to try using up a lot of CO2 tabs.

I used them for some time in a small tank with a trap diffuser where the released CO2 would be trapped and slowly dissolve in the water. It would take about 24hrs for it to dissolve completely but at the end it became very expensive as 20tabs where about $3-$4 in my country.

...they really do exist. LOL. Check out the other thread with the exact same title by the same OP. There's a link I posted to it.
