CO2 reactor, stained water

Hello, This is my first posting as I am new to the list.  I think it is a
great resource for all involved.    I have a 39 gallon with 60 watts of
light in mixed tubes and a well established substrate.  The tank is stocked
with 4 medium Angles, 2 Pearl Gour. And a few small tetras.  It is planted
with a mix of plants, most of them are swords and some Java fern as well a
purplish plant with crinkled leaves and a low plant with stiff rounded spear
point leaves. The plants are growing slowly but steadily. I do very little
work to the tank and it seems stable.  The Angles keep mating so I know they
are happy.  I have constructed a  yeast CO2 system from directions found on
"The Krib". Does anyone  have a in tank DIY CO2 reactor plan they could
share.  Also I am searching for a way to stain the water in the tank.  I
have tried the blackwater extract but the effect is temporary, gone in about
two days.  I have two external filters running slow with Peat as the only
active media besides the floss bag. Any suggestions?  Thanks for your help
