 hey  people...
 I  devised  a  new  method  for  generating  CO2.
 I  drew   inspiration  from  a  glass  of  sprite  on  the   table  while  lunching  with  my  wife.
 I  took  a   500ml  pet  bottle  of   plain  soda,  peirced  the  cap  in  the  middle  with  the  sewing  needle  and  placed  the  bottle  in  my  planted  tank..
 lo  and  behold..  there  was  an  amazing  amount  of  CO2  oozing  out  for  nearly  24  hours  ..but  quite  an  effort  went  into  keeping  the  bottle  low  in  the  tank..  as  it  has  a  tendency  to  surface  up..  hope  this  works..  wish  me  luck  and  i  would  appreciate  some  feedback  on  this  technique  which  i  would  like  to  call  "Pramods  Genie  in  the  Bottle  (PGB  for  short)...  
 
 this  is  much  LESS  clumsier  than  having  to  use  a  CO2  cylinder  for  the  purpose  ..  and  maybe  you  could  do  it  once  a  week  with  water  change..

 15/  per  day  comes  out  to  5,475  per  annum.
 Save  Rs  15/-  per  day  and  get  a  pressurised  kit  at  the  end  of  the  year.  Very Happy

 Well  DIY  works  3-4  times,  then  you  get  frustrated  and  go  with  pressurised  co2.  nobody  listenes  the  first  time,  that  includes  me.  You  can  as  well  pour  the  soda  in.  I  think  there  is  something  in  aqua  journal  about  amano  using  soda....

 Pramod,  really  nice  idea.  But  I  will  appreciate,  if  you  please  start  the  experiment  by  yourself  and  come  up  with  the  result.  
 
 I  would  suggest  to  go  for  a  3  feet  tank  with  3WPG  light,  Lots  of  Fertilizer,  lots  of  fast  grower  plants.  Use  this  CO2  method  in  that  tank  and  post  the  result  here  in  IAH  after  2-3  months.  
 
 I  will  love  to  use  this  method  in  my  smaller  tanks  after  seeing  your  result.  
 
 All  the  best.  Thumb Up

 Hey  Pramod
 
 This  concept  is  not  new,  Amano  initially  used  to  add  Soda  to  the  tanks  and  even  he  gave  up  because  it  turned  out  to  be  too  expensive.  Thats  when  he  set  off  to  make  an  automated  CO2  system.

 Normal  DIY  Co2  will  cost  around  Rs.15  for  about  10  to  15  days.  1/2  Kg  sugar  and  yeast  will  definitely  cost  less  than  Rs.  15  and  definitely  you  will  not  need  1/2  Kgs  sugar  too.  So  use  of  soda  definitely  may  not  be  cost  effective  and  by  your  own  admitance  its  quite  difficult  to  keep  the  bottle  stable  inside  the  tank.  It  maybe  amusing  to  try  it  out  but  i  guess  may  not  serve  the  purpose  in  the  long  run!!!!
