 the  main  parts  which  control  the  flow-  this  has  actually  give  more  life  to  the  co2-
 
 control  valve
 
 non  return  valve-  I  have  use  feviqwik  to  stick  the  non  return  valve  with  the  lid
 
 air  stone-  yu  can  also  use  a  pipe  connector  instead  of  air  stone

 Thanks  Jerin111  Smile  
 
 Hot  water  with  "1cup  of  sugar  for  startersr"-  let  it  remain  for  a  while  and  let  the  water  become  hazzy
 
 
 
 Now  put  the  yeast-  you  can  mesh  this  yeast  and  make  a  paste  by  mixing  the  baking  powder.

 Finally  install  the  assembly  next  to  the  tank,  here  I  neednot  put  it  above  for  the  fear  of  water  getting  sucked  if  there  is  vaccum  inside  the  bottle,  because  the  non-return  valve  is  attached  to  the  lid
 
 
 
 Another  Idea  for  creatng  bubbles

 Now  thats  how  I  have  been  able  to  have  constant  co2  during  winter  at  20deg  or  a  little  below-  this  will  remain  constant  for  about  10  days.  The  first  2  hours  nothing  will  happen.  After  2  hours,  the  reaction  will  start  and  the  bottle  will  become  tight/hard  Very Happy  .  relase  the  gas  slowly.  for  next  3  hours  it  will  be  uneven  flow,  as  soon  as  the  gas  balances  inside  the  empty  part  of  the  bottle,  a  constant  flow  of  co2  gass  can  be  achieved.
 
 VOILA!

 Thanks  and  Agreed,  but  its  a  2feet  tank  and  the  filter's  return  pipe  is  just  above  my  co2  releaser  pipe-  so  i  have  a  small  amount  of  diffusion.

 additionally,  if  you  cover  your  airstone  with  a  thin  layer  of  foam  the  CO2  bubble  will  further  get  smaller  resulting  in  more  diffusion....just  my  2  cents...  Smile
