Default Re: Tiny super efficient CO2 reactor

I love this reactor. I find that with a quart of sugar-yeast there's a saturation of CO2 in a 10 gallon tank and the outflow sponge doesn't have any appreciable effect on it except to diffuse the flow of water (which is too much in a 10 gallon betta tank otherwise). I'm planning on getting a 1.5G hex that takes a 10W compact fluorescent and matching it up with this as a filter and CO2 diffuser to see what sort of cute nano tank I can come up with.

I mounted mine sideways so that if the power does go out the air accumulates and exits the side intake vents.

At $10 its actually a dollar cheaper than the air powered cartridge filter that my GF has been using, and since I don't care about carbon filtration and highly value sponges...
