DIY CO2 in tank

I have the end of tube from the pop bottle going into a powerhead canister.
I have cleaned the media in the canister so I don't think that it is so
plugged that the powerhead is actually sucking the liquid from the bottle
(or maybe it is).

Steve:

The powerhead is sucking out the contents of your DIY CO2 bottle. I have
better results routing the CO2 into a reactor (old gravel cleaning tube)
that has the output flow running through it.  The water flow mixes the CO2
very nicely w/o getting the yeast mixture into the tank.

BTW, I have finally found a mixture combination for my DIY CO2 that lasts
two weeks: two cups of sugar,  tsp. of yeast,  and 1 tsp. of bicarb.  All
in a 2 lt. bottle 2/3s full.  I am still looking for the right mixture to
last three weeks.
