Cheers oh and sorry for stealing the thread lol
What size is your tank and sump?you may find that diy co2
will be usless in a tank over 20 gal
others might even say a10 gal
. Sorry im just assuming you have a larger tank because you mentioned a sump i may be wrong
If you had it in the sump all the agitation would make the co2
gas off alot quicker making it pointless. Depending on how it was setup
An airstone will create bubbles to large to be of any use and will float straight up an out. Someone mentioned a wooden chopstick you can easily get these from any takeaway cut of about 1/2 inch and jam it into the airline. Thats a very common method with diy co2
i personally like this method because tapping it into your internal can make it noisier but thats just personal preference
I just read over quickly and while typing i cant remeber if an air pump had been mentioned but anyway running air and co2
at the same time is a no no if you have adequate surface agitation you shouldnt have any problems .
