    Default CO2 bubbler "slime"

    0 Not allowed!
    What's up with that slime? I get so much of it in two days time the bubbles can't even come out. I put the bubble counter away yesterday and tried an airstone. I had to clean the slime off that twice today. Now I'm trying an airline bubbler.

    Does anyone here use the Fizz Factory and if so, how does that work for you?

    I get slime on my airstone too but it doesn't stop the bubbles and my snails seem to like eating it off.

    I just afraid the bubbles will get blocked and the bottle will build up pressure.

    I squeeze a couple of good sized dings into the side of my bottle so I can see if pressure is building up.
    Go ahead - try to count my Bumblebee Gobies!

    heh, that's actually a really good idea... you might hear it pop back into shape, like a warning alarm. just thinking diy aloud here but you could totally make an emergency pressure valve... just think like those check valves aquarium stores sell... it's a little chamber with a spring loaded stopper. once the pressure is greater than the spring power, it vents... of course, there'd be no way to know that you're venting co2 instead of getting it in the tank

    another way to make an emergency pressure valve is to take an airline T, sand down the barbs, and put a rubber cap of sorts on it. I have never done it myself, but read about it here. It seems like it would be a little difficult to get set up properly, but once done, a good safety measure.
