I have a hot glue gun that i use as insurance. A light seal on both the inside of the bottle top and outside and it is good to go. you can also cut the tube and apply a valve that you can switch off to refresh the bottle. Good luck if you try it. it is very simple really. Get the seal right and you have a cheap CO2 source that shouldn't ever suffocate your fish. I have run three bottles at once to try and clear algae and the fish seemed fine for the fortnight i had three bottles running.

Ditto. I've had good luck with a leak free seal using a 3/8" hole and silicone airline tubing. If you cut the end of the airline tubing at sharp angle, you can feed the tip through the hole in the lid and then use needle nose pliers to pull it through..

The high point of your week is when you realize your Kuhlis have learned where you try to placefood for them and sit in the area and watch you when bloodworms go into the tank but not to their area. I'm being accepted by the school. They got their own batch of bloodworms dropped in with tweezers I'll teach my kuhlis to publicly beg for food or die trying.

... When you rush home from work to try out the new gravel vac that the UPS dropped off as you where leaving that morning.
You then spend your night in awe as you do your weekly water change
