1 Small Buble Every 3 to 4 Seconds

so I mixed the

2 cups sugar
1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp yeast

and 8+ hours later only 1 small bubble enery 3 to 4 seconds and dont see anything out the tube in my tank.

Got this mixture from Aquatic Eden: DIY CO2 Recipe: Duration vs. Intensity

I would start by checking to make sure you don't have any leaks anywhere.

Did you start with warm water as well?

DIY CO2 never really worked out for me. I ended up getting a 5g bottle and a solenoid... which reminds me I still need to sell that stuff...
