Supplemental CO2 for smaller tanks

Hi all. I have a 20H that is low tech today. I'm thinking about adding a CO2 setup. Not going high tech so to speak, just giving a little boost to CO2 levels. I've been adding glut but just don't see the results.

Ideally looking for a system that I can easily conceal (my stand is metal and open underneath). I don't think want to go the DIY route (2 liters + a bubble ladder). Did that years ago and while plants looked good, I don't know that I have the time to mess with keeping the yeast going.

Some of the cartridges out there seem expensive for what they are. Looking for ideas.

Unfortunately, my recommendation would just to be go with pressurized CO2. If you want small, sleek and concealable, you will have to pay a premium for the smaller cylinders. You might be able to find a 2.5 lb cylinder, which might be small enough for your liking.

Thanks. Thatís what I thought. Might just go the DIY route and see how it goes. Donít have to do anything so may use keep the tank as is too.
