Liquid Co2

Right now im doing liquid co2 until I can get a gas setup. Does anyone see a problem with measuring the dose in an eye dropper and leaving the nozzle in the tank overnight to squeeze in the morning?

Why would you need to do this?

Cause measuring and dosing in the morning sucks! It would be so much easier to just squeeze the dropper in my way to get coffee

The Excel in the eye dropper will slowly mix into the tank water, so you will never have the full dosage of Excel in the water. It only lasts about a day in the water, gradually losing its potency. Much better to just take the time to do it right.

Squirt it into a plastic cup the night before, dump it in the tank in the morning
