Hello, I have always had a bad history with plants in my tank. So one day I decided to put add some CO2, to my planted tank. I looked up on YouTube and found out I can use a 2 Liter bottle so I made 3 of them for my 75 gallon tank.
    I used a mix of:
    7 table spoons of sugar.
    1 teaspoon of Baking soda
    2/4 teaspoon of yeast.
    I added them to my tank.
    What I wondered is will this create enough CO2 for my plants?
    Will this be harmful for my fish if I leave it on 24/7 with 2 O2 tubes running only at night?
    Will the three 2 Liter bottles/mixtures be enough or too little to supply my planted aquarium.
    I posted some pictures to give some detail.
    Thank you very much!
    PS: I also added root tabs, I use flourish twice weekly, and my light wattage is 110W that I leave on for around 12-15 hours a day.

    Hello
    Only one way to tell if you have co2 drop checker..
    Also adding co2 through airstone is not great either
    You should not use co2 at night as plants stop consume co2 during night ..co2 overdose will kill fish
    You need
    Drop checker,check valve and co2 diffuser..

    I have the air stones only for the air, the o2. Then for the carbon 2L bottles I have put a piece of cigarette filter into the end of the tubing which allows it to disburse very fine bubbles. What does the check valve do? ThNks for you help
