    I've finally decided that I need CO2 in my planted 20 gal - I have 3.25 wpg and Excel alone just isn't doing it for my plants. I bought one of these Hagen setups on eBay yesterday, does anyone else use one? How do you like it?

    I don't plan on buying the refills as they are expensive, just mixing my own yeast recipe. Does anyone who uses this system have a homemade recipe they'd like to share?

    I haven't used one personally but I've heard they are supposed to be pretty good little units.

    When I did DIY cO2 I used 1tbsp of yeast to about 1/4 cup of sugar.
