Hello and welcome to APC.

I never tried the CO2 tablets, I'm not sure how you can maintain a constant supply of CO2 w/ a tablet.


many people in Asia said co2 tablet is not functional. i used it several times before. honestly, i have no idea if it really works without examination by water condition etc...

If you go by a Hydroponic store, you can get a C02 tablet just a bit smaller then a hockey puck. They use them to increase the available organic carbon supply to increase yeilds. One can expect up to 30% increase in yeild depending on the turnover of air in the existing setup.

A tablet could be broken up used like this similar to the DIY C02 in a bag style. :lol:
Wouldn't it make more sense to just use the yeast gelatin system? IMO it doesn't make sense to have to deal with co2 tablets everyday when you can use yeast at probably a lesser cost.
