[APD] Re: Yeast/?algae bloom

G'day Nick

Are you absolutely sure some of your yeast culture isn't getting into your tank? You can plumb in a collecting chamber or even a CO2 washer in the line from your yeast reactor to the powerhead. This can just be another small plastic drink bottle with 2 holes in the cap the line in from your reactor goes almost to the bottom , under a small amount of water, and the exit line starts near the cap and goes to your powerhead. Then you can see by any turbidity in the water if any bubbles of yeast solution are being transferred.

Normally my tank is crystal clear. I've recently gotten into the whole
CO2 plant thing and decided to test out a 1litre DIY yeast and coke
bottle method.

If I look long ways through my tank (1.4m) it appears a cloudy white
colour with about 25% reduction in transparency and besides the adding
some more plants from a friend and addition of a DIY YEAST generator
running Bakers Yeast and 1 cup of sugar in 500ml of water, I haven't
changed anything else in my set-up.
