    Anybody used osmotic bags as a method of carbon dosing? If so where did you obtain the bags or material to make the bag?

    Vodka, ethanol, or any liquid carbon source. Could be directly to or through the aquarium or within a reactor or within a media. Looking for thoughts.....

    Blue bird of happiness put aside for next year. Glad you like my new avatar.;)

    Osmotic bags are available. Not too pricey as they are used in the hobby already. Just looking for alternatives.
