Co2 kit or DIY?

Recommended Posts

I have started a 25liter planted tank and right now I'm using the DSM. I read some things about people saying DIY is good and I've also heard the same about a small kit like fluval mini pressurized 20g.

My question is...

Is DIY co2 better ( as in price and growth) compared to a kit?

A lot more work involved with DIY! I make new bottles up one a week to run my 4x2x2 planted. It works well but it's inability to regulate is difficult! It runs 24/7. If you try and turn it off you'll blow bottles up! It's okay of you don't have the $$$ for a proper setup like me!

Definitely go for DIY Yeast to start with, its cheap, its easy, its effective and its satisfying doing it DIY.

When you see the difference in growth you'll soon buy a kit. (I started with DIY and saw huge differences. It wasnt long before I bought a full setup, best thing I ever did with the planted tank)
