Ok, maybe I'm just being a little obsessive.
I just added a DIY Co2
injector to my tank using the instructions found on the web site http://www.netpets.org/fish/reference/freshref/co2.html
. The only problem is that the site doesn't say how much water should be in the bottle when I'm done. It just says:
Dissolve 1 cup of sugar (any type of sugar will work) in about 500ml - 1 litre of water and pour into the generator. Dissolve 1/2 - 1tsp. of yeast (bakers yeast is available at any supermarket) in a small amount of warm (NOT HOT) water, add to the generator and top up to the required level
with cold water.
Does anyone have any thoughts as to what the "required level" is? I filled it only halfway.
Another question: Does this mixture need light? heat? Can I just store it underneath my stand? (don't worry, I already have a check valve installed so it won't siphon my tank out) Any thoughts or experience you can share would be helpful.
