White residue from homemade Co2
Just to add a thought to this thread. I too had the white slime residue when
using the sugar-yeast Co2 method with a airstone. I cleaned it weekly, until
it was just too much trouble. I think it is just a natural by-product of the
chemical reaction with the sugar and yeast (Not a scientist, so don't quote
me on it). I believe it is just something we have to deal with. As long as
nothing starts dying (like fish) or appears sick, I don't worry about it.
And so far nothing has (died that is).
