Decided to try co2. So before I invest I did the diy for a 56g.
I used a 1 gallon jug used a 2 litter recipe x's 2 . And bought a bubble ladder. I had a lot of problems with the ladder but know its working fine. I do have a couple of question.
How many bpm is a safe rate for my tank I counted 104?
Now that the bubbles are traveling up the ladder really fast it seems like they are not evaporating. As long as the bubbles are taveling the ladder am I getting the co2 into the water even though their coming out the same size?
Thanks for any help!!

There's no method for determining what a safe rate is. There are variables specific to each individual tank. A drop checker is a qualitative way.
