Dumb question?!

With a DIY CO2, could you just hook it up through a multi-line regulator into the tank, and add a bubble stone inside the tank? That way, the bubbles would be small, and you could regulate how much goes into the tank.

I am worried about putting too much in my tank and killing my fish.

...another question that has a little to do with the above question...
I have about 4 sprigs of hornwart, and one (sorta) sprig of Cabomba (green kind)...have plant lights for them...fert once a week, or once every two weeks (how often should I fert?), and I am NOT running CO2 at all...should I? These plants are in a 10g bare-bottom fry tank (currently in tank: female betta w/dropsys...still alive so far!).

DIYCo2 does not have enough pressure to be regulating anything. Susie Q
I really don't mean to ask dumb questions...I have never used CO2...which is SAFER to use DIY or pressurized CO2?...and which is easier to use in the long run?

No dumb questions, you have to consider how big of a tank that you are setting up for CO2, are you wanting high tech or low tech. For low tech, you can do away with CO2. Say for 20 gallon or bigger, IMO it is better to go with pressurized for the long haul then DIY CO2.
