Ok, here's a web page with a DIY reactor plan.
click on "DIY Yeast-Generated CO2".

And to stain the tank water, a awful lot of "driftwood" will 
stain your water various shades of yellow,amber, or 
brown.  Most ppl on this list are questing all the time to 
find wood that won't.  I ordered some driftwood form 
http://www.thatpetplace.com/ once that turns the water 
amber. It's impossible to keep it form doing so, with 
carbon and water changes, even.
