Take a straw and blow into your tank every few minutes.

Thanks for that laugh!Already tried this years back. I'd ride my bike around the block to build up some carbon dioxide and then re-breathe my last breath into a plastic bag to give it an extra amount of CO2, then quick into the house with my head swimming from oxygen deprivation to blow that last breath into the tank bell jars.
Yeast and Sugar works fine by comparison
Ok, well I bet we could figure that out. But the truth of the science is, that you can't 'take a breath' and then breath into the tank. You have to have a normal period of breath, and the amount of CO2 will be substantial. So not a lot of air, just a little breath.Yes but what kinda of bubbles per second can you get?
Yea, I think I'm really waiting for the day I find that all I need to do is piss in my tank each day, and everything will grow beautifully and live well.Do not attempt if you are smoker like myself.
Brilliant! Yes, Richard Branson is/was funding a CO scrubbing contest a few years back. I don't know if a facility has been built yet, but it's a game changer if we get good at it.Your exhaled breath is like 100,000 ppm by volume CO2 from what I can remember. The key is to collect the CO2. Does anybody work in the CO2 scrubbing field? What about a device that collects CO2 while the lights are off and release CO2 when needed.
I read it a while back. There's a compound that traps CO2 naturally like activated carbon. You'd move air through a matrix of the stuff. When you need CO2 released, you apply heat.Brilliant!

You left out another gas, CO right?Can I raise the stakes on the recklessly impractical CO2 solutions?
What about the flue gasses from your gas boiler? A nice premix burner produces a steady 9.0%CO2 and lots of it, about equal to the volume of gas that being burnt and that is measured in litres per second. Now that sort of CO2 rate would grow some plant. Save the planet a bit as well.
If anybody tries it and it and it all goes boobs up, it wasn't my idea, I was never here.
Yea, you drop a dry ice "torpedo" down to a level where the pressure ensures it stays solidified.You can store CO2 in water too! Just blow again and again and again and the water becomes carbonated. This thought makes me rethink how to make a DIY yeast sugar system that can be shut off at night. See my DIY forum post to see what this generated.
