[APD] Re:yeast co2

As for a reactor, baby food jar weighted down with rocks, and a small powerhead agitating the water/co2 interface worked wonders for me.

For sealing the bottle, home depot usually carries rubber stoppers , with or without the holes drilled. Use a stopper and some rigid tubing to go through it, and from there regular airline tubing seals well enough

Hi Everyone,

This subject has been done to death (I've searched the archives). But I'm still confused. After an absence of several years from planted tanks, I'm getting one going and thought I'd have no immediate need for CO2 so I'd have a month to save up for a pressurized system. Nope. A generous online retailer subbed glossostigma (spelling?) for Java moss--Yes! Totally true! So now I'm on a mission to save the gloss! I have bright light and need CO2. So I'm wondering about yeast as a temporary solution. I've tried yeast CO2 before but didn't have luck getting the silicone sealant to work with the plastic bottle caps. I've found some sources for fittings online but would rather get this set up this weekend if possible. Does anyone have any ideas how to form a good seal on a plastic bottle? Also, I'm trying to go as low-tech as possible in terms of a reactor. Does the bell method of diffusion work? What's the consensus on that?
