What I did is start a batch on the weekend and then another on Wednesday. I attached the two bottles to an airsotone in the tank using a T connector. They are going strong after a week now. I figured I'll change each batch after 2 weeks. This should provide a continuous (overlapped) supply.

Use a check valve.

here's another tip for those that want to do this and wish to avoid the cap seal leaks. I read somewhere that you can make a hole in the cap that is much smaller than the airline tubing and then cut the tubing at a angle and squeeze it through the hole and have it seal. keep a close eye on your ph when you first start doing this you don't want any PH swings to mess up da fishes.

This is my way of getting lots of bubbles out of yeast method within a couple of hours:

Pour 1 cup of sugar into the cup.
Fill it with warm water.
Pour approx 2 to 3 tsp of sugar saturated water from above not dissolved sugar into other cup, add 1 tsp of yeast and mix.
LEAVE IT ALONE FOR 10 MINUTES. NO SHAKING. Good reaction will be indicated by a thick foam of yeast in the cup.
In the mean time fill your 2 litre bottle with water/sugar solution and dissolve the sugar.
Add yeast and give it a shake. I keep mine in 22 deg C.
Works like a charm.

55g planeted CO2 yeast
ammonia 0 nitrite 0 natrate 5 pH 7.5 kH6
3 Emerald Catfish
12 busy Ottos, 7 Rainbows
3 Clown Loaches, 2 SAE
2 upside down cats
