DIY CO2 - some of the "stuff" went into the tank

Hey there

Had to clean my glass difuser and the pressure forces some of the sugar-water-yeast stuff back in the tank :( - not much, perhaps 10 - 20 centilitres.

I changed about 50% of the water and it allready looks better - but is there a danger for the tanks plants and fish?

Funny aspect - the tank smells a bit like beer :)

Below is a picture of a gas separator used for that exact situation.

Here is the website that describes how to make the separator.

scroll down to the section called Over Tolerance Pressure Release and Prevention Systems

gonna make one of them for sure - but is there any danger for the life in the tank?
You should be fine with the 50% WC.
