You could use a small water bottle. Just tape it to the side of the bigger one. I'm not sure about the check valve.

Ok, the only thing hiding me back right now is the caulk and the check valve ( here is pic of set up now) also , could I temporarily use an aristone for the diffuser part? It would be for untill I can get my hands on some chopsticks. ( a week or so)

I would imagine the arrow should go with the co2 flow lol. Just blow in both ends and whichever side you blow in that doesn't allow air out, goes toward the aquarium

Ok, I'm planning on installing it tonight but I don't know if the caulk is ok to use, I have tank sealant ( for cracks) could that work?

I don't think it matters with the check valve and bubble counter on there.
