    This has really been bugging me lately. Why is it that every time I set up my yeast/sugar/water CO2 reactor with brand new solution and hook it up, water from the aquarium tries to flow UP the tube for a while before CO2 begins to flow down it and into the aquarium? This is really irritating, and I can't seem to figure out why it happens. Anyone know?

    You set up a syphon. PLace the water level in the reactor equal to the water level in the tank. If you place it to high it MIGHT do the reverse. It doesn't matter how you have the toobing just as long as the water levels are the same. So basically you just have raise the reactor up until the water in it is at the same height as the aqureium water.

    Ah yes, of course! A siphon, duh. Thanks. I just find it strange that the water in the aquarium seems to somehow "know" that the level of the water in the reactor is lower, lol. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
