umm I was just kinda wondering whats the difference between a DIY yeast reactor and me sticking a hose in my mouth and breathing out into the aquarium...despite me getting out of breath and possible toxins I could breath in and out.

Sorry thats such a dumb question but I was just wondering...its been a long time sinc yr12 biology Laughing

The DIY CO2 has a higher percent of CO2 in the bubbles compaired to your breath. Also, You'd have to sit at your tank and blow bubbles all day and I don't know if that would even do anything except tire you out and freak out the fish.

also, since air is around 70% nitrogen plus other stuff, very little of what you exhale would actually be CO2. plus it would be big bubbles that would float up to the surface, pop and reenter the air without having to much time to get into the water.

if you're have a really slow, boring day, it'll burn off some time.
