I hope you don't mind me offering another design. Since you started a thread it would
be redundant to create a thread with the same content. My wife bought me one of those dish washing scrub
sponges you fill with soap. I removed the sponge and cut off the side you fill the soap.
I then used a heat gun and a spring pipe bender to shape it. Total cost $1.00.
I failed with a design that consisted of
a tiny bottle and a piece of tube. There was not enough surface area for gas exchange.
The solution never changed from blue to green. The Co2 was on all night so I decided
to turn up the Co2 to this weared number of 4 bubbles a secon. I wound up gassing all
my fish. Well in my tank I only have one bubble per 2 second and my new drop checker
tells me my Co2 is fine. My new checker is cool I think and works great. Not bad for a Newby.
