im slightly confused, how does the mix last for so long?
How big of a tank can this setup satisfy. I currently have a 75 gal that i am trying to grow plants in. (community tank)
This video should get a 4K remaster
If this work let me know
for twice the price you can get an aluminum tank setup.
How would you do this now? Also, I was wondering if you make the C02 system I would think that you would not be able to shut it off when you shut the lights off.
this set got several problems cuz plastic made
just go on ebay an search for diy co2 kit and set search option to worldwide
around 30 euro you will find a full set with electric switch, bubble counter and all the stuff and its made out of metal
What capacity are these bottles? Can you give the proportions of ingredients for one liter bottles?
Can you put a link to the CO2 Diffusor parts? What is an easy way/timer to turn it on and off automatically?
How many bubbles per second for a 100 gallon planted tank.
This is freaking awesome. Well done man. This just made me decide that having CO2 for my plants isn't too difficult after all and I'll give it a try. Thanks!
I did this and the it only lasted about 2 days
Who is here today comment date u here
Will it explode if the valve is shut off?

Where to turn it off at night?
Never been able to get good levels of co2 in tank with DIY. Even with it pumping away
As the last guy was saying, people are still watching. That is the best video about how to build your own co2 generator hands down! Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge with those of us on a bit of a tight budget to have amazing tanks!! You Rock, and I hope that you have an amazing day!!!✌️♥️🤘
P.S. we have 12 tanks with fish, and plants but 17 total. So, you’re saving a life here🤪
More help!!! Even at the pressure of 1.5 and like 10 million bubbles per second, I only get a little a little of CO2 coming out as bubbles in the tank. What am I doing wrong??
Does water manually needs to be added in bubble counter or does it flows from baking soda bottle?
Hi there, Really helpful set of videos thank you. I purchased the diy co2 system off amazon. I also purchased the electronic solenoid so i can set up a timer with it. One issue i have is that the thumbscrew that comes with the DIY CO2 system is really hit and miss. I'll set it up for a number of bubbles in the bubble counter then ill check it an hour later the number of bubbles will be different. is it that the thumbscrew is broken or do i need some sort of pressure regulator? thanks in advance
is it okay to use sugar? mix with baking soda??
Anyone have used the yeast + sugar method? any opinion?
Hi, I installed this system 1 week ago. I tried to adjust the number of bubbles today, I opened the valve too much. After that, all the liquid in the citric acid bottle flowed into the carbonate bottle. Is there a way to prevent this?
I just got this stuff, planning to use sugar and yeast. I dont have a bubble counter with it. If the gauge is green means its running well and just leave it as it is?
