Hi,
I'm thinking of building a co2 system for my lightly planted 29 gallon. I found this tutorial and I was wondering if it's actually a good tutorial or not. Is there anything I should add or remove if I choose to follow these steps? Is the shown "recipe" of sugar and yeast a good one for my tank size?
Does anyone know of any better tutorials for building a cheap co2 setup?

Thanks in advance.

Ive done this already, its really good. But watch out for the diffuser as its glass, pnce youve attached the hose its going to be hard to remove once it has set its place. I broke mine so I ended up buying 12$ diffuser. Its been a week now and I'm seeing results, plants starting tocarpet

Btw, you can add more so you don't have to refill anytime soon. Just remember that bkng soda is 1:1 mix and citric acid is 1:3 mix. And use 2liter bottles
