id stay away from ecel, it puts a limit on what plants you can have. if you really want to go with extra carbon get a pressuised system, yeast based systems are far to sporatic to be of any use.
Not exactly correct. DIY co2 generators work very well for tanks up to around 40 gals. I have a 30, and 40 gal. on yeast generated co2, and they are doing excellent. I will concur they could be sporadic if your not diligent in keeping the generators renewed often.
I use a two bottle system on my tanks. They produce a consistent 1BPS. I make up a new bottle every 2-3 weeks.
