I've been searching a few different forums looking for some pictures or directions on a relatively simple and compact DIY CO2 setup for a 10 gal tank.

Can anyone help me out?

Try using the search function, there should be plenty of diy co2 threads...

I have a question about my CO2. I had it for a long time with the ladder. But my problem is that the bubbles come out in big bursts so they are too big for the ladder and they just escape to the surface.

What is the deal?

I'm no expert on CO2 but I've had the ladder and never had a problem like that, unless-are you sure the end of the tube at the output is clear? Sometimes white junk builds up and blocks the bubbles path and they end up coming straight out. Only other thing I could think of - do you put baking soda in your mixture? Maybe your mix is reacting too quickly, shooting out more gas than needed - baking soda may help by slowing down the process. Just a guess...
