Hello Christian,

A DIY CO2 indicator is always possible, but the Dupla CO2 permanent test is the most readable I have ever seen. More than the JBL or EHEIM ones. It is not really expensive - about $20 - and it is really nice in an aquarium. You won't have the same appearance with a DIY CO2 indicator, and you won't have the same precision. If you want to to try a DIY CO2 indicator, good luck ! But I know, by experience that it is impossible to do best products that the Dupla ones.

I know somebody who tried to copy the CO2 reaktor S of Dupla. Yes it works, but mine (the real Dupla)  better mixes water and CO2. That's all :-)
