DIY CO2 generator for live plants

The DIY CO2 is what most of us use here. I don't silcone my airline, tho. I cut the line at a pointed angle, pull it thru the hole with pliers and that's it. It's very tight and air proof. I also just use a punch to make the hole in the cap.

I have been drilling and tapping threads into my caps! Thanks for the tip.
