Ive read a source or two that says yeast needs oxygen during the first part of its life cycle.... for like 24 hours. Then again ive read on this site that people just mix the batch up and screw the lid on. I geuss there would be dissolved oxygen in the water, but i wouldn't think it would be a 24 hour supply. The source of the information wasn't the best so id thought id ask you guys.
The reason im asking is my diffusion method isn't the best so i added another bottle to my system. The old bottle is about a week old. I used a t connector to connect the two tubes. Since i read the post about people just screwing on the lid after mixing... i did that without thinking.
Now comes the problem
I geuss what i did was to effectively add oxygen to the old bottle.. a no no im geussing. And also now the old bottle is going to saturate the new one with CO2 and probably drive off some O2.... So far no bubbles
As you can tell im not the brightest person on the block.
I geuss some yeast will probably survive, but wont give me an accurate measure of how two bottles will perform on my tank.
