We breathe out carbon dioxide. That is NOT what they need, so it won't do them any good. It doesn't give them any oxygen.
~cough~ We convert very little of the percentage of O2 into CO2, they're just meaning than opening the lid and giving a little blow to circulate the air will help.
Walmart sells these nice hardened canisters that have to be aged first, but they're "shatterproof" all you have to do is soak the hormone-hardener out of them for a couple days. they come in "yay-big" and "yay-bigger" sizes, I assume the smaller is a half gallon-ish. They have latch-lock lids that can be tied down with wire and a good silicone seal.
I have one as a fully cycled cat proof tank.
