I made a Yeast CO2 System


I have a small freshwater aquarium and I am a beginner. Just made a Yiest CO2 system. But I can observe droplets inside the silicon tube. Is that alcohol or water? If it is alcohol, is it harmful to the tank and the fishes and the live plants? Please help.

Thank you.

I would drop the slurry level in the bottle to avoid any making it into the tank.

It shouldn't hurt anything, but it's not ideal to have it mixing into your tank water.


If it were easy we wouldn't be here

Did you do a double bottle system or a single?

It sounds like you're asking about the bubble counter liquid. Mine is just tank water. I filled it up set it on the system and the CO2 pushing out will regulate the level.

I assume it adds a moment for absorption as well inside the counter. That's the way the CO2 cartridge system works for Fluval.
