Thread: DIY CO2-system

  1. Lightbulb DIY CO2-system

    0 Not allowed!
    As discussed in this thread, here is the english version of an easy DIY CO2-system.

    I know several questions may arise for the first time builder so don't hesitate to ask, if it's something I don't know about I'll find out and get back to you. If there are enough questions I'll even compile a FAQ or a Q&A for this.

    Any feedback is appreciated :)

    I've been thinking of ordering this and having plants in my 30 gallon.

    Same thing PetSmart has but $9 cheaper at Big Al's.

    It's used to help plants grow if you have live ones.

    That's an OK way to get started and not worry about how your system will do. Then, when the packets are gone, you can find one of the DIY recipe's available on the web for exactly that system.

    Yeah...someone out there figured out a pretty good combination of sugar, yeast, etc. for that size container.

    One example from here:
    One Nutrafin co2 kit producing about 28 to 30 bubbles per min using a DIY mixture rather than the supplied sachets. (sugar till the first fins inside the nutrafin container, about 3/4 of a teaspoon of alison's bakers active yeast (bought from tesco) and a 1/2 teaspoon of bicorbonate of soda.
