fishesnstuff asked: were you able to get the glass diffusers to work using DIY sugar/yeast CO2? I've heard those don't produce enough pressure to work with the glass diffusers, but I'm willing to try them if they do work. Thanks!
Yeah, they worked for me. There is definitely enough pressure in a DIY sugar/yeast reactor for the glass diffuser to create bubbles. I had a 2L soda bottle setup once which created more bubbles. The last one I used most recently, though, was using the nutrafin co2 kit with the co2 reactor and ladder thingy. But, i switched out the ladder for the glass diffuser and it worked fine. Not as much “bubbles” as using a 2L soda bottle, but it is also easier to refill. i don’t test the water for co2, though. i just visually inspect the bubbles coming out of the diffuser and if they’re small enough and enough of it are being released then i am satisfied. the way i see it, the DIY co2 thing was a “bonus” for the plants and i like to think that the plants will grow without it. obviously, the plants will grow at a faster rate with the DIY co2 running. but, i don’t want to rely on it. if you wanna try it, it won’t hurt the plants. nor, the fish. it’s very hard to kill fish with DIY co2 unless it’s not a properly cycled tank which i had to learn from experience. good luck!
