Sounds to me like you have a leak. (been there, done that) You should get
bubbles irregardless. Fermentation may be slow at your cool temperatures,
but this may be better as often DIY CO2 goes too fast. You can keep your
bottle below the tank albiet you with the slight risk of siphoning water
out of your tank.
