...hello, everyone!

...quite new to forums and using forums; tried looking for info on potency of diy co2 (yeast-sugar mix or citric.acid-sodium.bicarbonate mix) compared to that of pressurised co2 but i can't seem to find one

...a couple of years back, i came across at least one (can't remember if it was a forum or a blog or what) that says diy co2 are only about 20-25% as potent as the pressurised one, but i wanted to review that or look at newer data, perhaps

...since i'm still finding my way through forums, can anyone please send a link to an article or help me move to another thread that somehow confirms or refutes this - thanks!

It will help but 1) only to be used with low light, not enough CO2 in water to have high light. 2) due to changing levels it is possible to give higher risk of algae.
Best way seems to be multiple setups in line ( more constant production).
There should be some posts in CO2 forum here.
