Not that great on Co2 and stuff but I know about. With you DIY one you are talking about there isn't a way to control how much goes in so you'd have to run an airstone at night to get oxygen levels up in the water but doing this will waste quite abit of the Co2 through surface agitation but ofcourse you need the oxygen!
T5 lights are better than T8 lights but thats for someone else to comment on as to whether you need them or not.
