I have a 10 gallon with a citric acid co2 reactor. It's always worked really well with me manually turning it on and off, however now that I am out of college and working, it's hard to have the flexibility to do that consistently which is harming my tank. I tried purchasing a co2...
Most dollar stores I've seen carry 3L bottles of soda for $1. Anyone here using that as a sugar source? I read a post somewhere about someone just dumping their yeast into these.
I'm curious what effect the other ingredients have on the yeast.
Hello guys I'm new to this and had a question that I can't figure out. I have a 29gal planted aqurium and I have a DIY co2 that I just did today and haven't kicked in yet (start bubbling) my question was that I have my air pump running during the day and it shuts off at night. Now should I not...
First of all I want to say that I’m new to this forum. I became a member of the planted tank to share my following idea with you.
Needle valves or solenoid valves in combination with a time switch are often used to automatically turn of CO2 at night. I came up with an alternative idea to do...
Can anyone help a novice to understand why he can't seem to get ~any~ pH drop in response to CO2 injection?
I have a 35 gallon tank with 50 watts of light. I have a bio-wheel type HOB filter. I'm growing beginner plants, most of which seem to be doing well in...
i wanted to know if this will work as a CO2 regulator, what would I have to change to make it work if it will work for CO2? I have the paintball tanks for now a 20oz.
I’ve been out of the hobby for a while, but I’m thinking of jumping back in with an 18” cube planted tank. I’m looking to set up a heavily planted, mid to high light tank with CO2 injection, but I’d like to incorporate some of Diana Walstad’s approaches with a soil bottom and high flow/low...
I am having a speck of trouble with my new co2 yeast reactor.
It is in an ocean spray bottle I added 2 cups sugar, i packet yeast and a pinch of baking soda. Noticed that it was producing a ton of bubbles So I divided by 2 and refilled the balance with water. I am using a...
What can I do to make it better?
Basicly pumping air into yeast sugar water solution. Hoping it displaces co2 out top into air stone in tank and water flow disperses.
