Re: [APD] Yeast CO2 in 55 gal tank
Lowest tech for CO2 is bubbling it into the base of a
powerhead or a canister filter intake.
Using a large tube as a mixing chamber works better, if you
happen to have a gravel vacuum tube (or some PVC) on hand.
This will get you 100% absorbtion or nearly so. But less
attractive than having eh mixing chamber external to the
aquarium (aka, external reactor).
