	I had a problem with a 2 liter bottle.  I ran the air line to a
sponge filter with a power head.  For some reason the power head
collapsed the 2 liter bottle and filled the tank with yeast.  About half
of the plants and fish died.  I'm still using 2 liter bottles but I'm
making sure that the CO2 outlet is not too close to the inlet of the
power head.
