I would guess that the reason your DIY CO2 system is working in the
bucket but not the aquarium is the lenght of tubing you are using
in the two cases. The generator can only build up so much pressure.
If the tubing is too long, the pressure may just not be enough to
get all the way from the bottle down into your tank. Possibly
pressure is building up in the bottle itself preventing the yeast
from generating any more? I'm just guessing at this. Certainly
temperature has something to do with how well a yeast colony grows.
You don't let bread rise in a cold room. I've noticed here that
temperature plays a large part in the yeast activity in my tank.
Look into those two things and I'm sure you'll get it working.
