Default CO2 bubbles collecting in Nutrafin diffuser

Incredible that they get away selling that stuff at that price.

Anyway, as I said earlier, I wanna keep the diffuser and build a DIY CO2
system for the rest. With CO2 check valves (if I can find those around
here, no luck yet), 2 yeast generator bottle, a gas separator and silicone
or better tubing.

BTW, anybody tried to use non-refined brown sugar like cane sugar in the mix
instead of what the instructions says: "Add white table sugar (no other
substitute)"?

simple baking soda,
I have the system as well but it was so hard to find refill packages of

the
powder I went to just the old yeast and sugar with a little baking soda to
regualte the reaction, just mix it as the instructions said with their mix

and
your off

If one wanted to get a better idea as to the contents of the stabilizer,
couldn't you measure out the same amounts of it and of baking soda and put
them in two identical sized containers of water that have been tested for KH
before, then check the KH after adding? At least then you might have a
better idea wouldn't you?


Of course, someone could just taste it and see.

Call me a chicken but I try to avoid submitting myself to unknown
chemicals... :-)

Just as a matter of interest, what did you do during your college years...?

I don't really remember college, but I researched every single one of those
chemicals before I tried them. :-)
