Tubing, bottles, yeast and sugar solutions. That is if you mean low cost C02. But you'll SPEND time making it, fiddling with the system calibrated and set up to be most effective in your tank. If this is a smaller tank that may be enough. If its a larger tank you may want to go pressurized.

Paintball co2 setup.
look it up on YouTube "aquarium paintball Co2."
PLUS, it only costs about 25-35 dollars to make (including the price of a paintball tank!)
