Ok, thanks guys... That link you gave me helped, Fender. I'm using a small pond pump on the difusser in my 55gal tank. Thats delivering 300gal/hr and this (along with my Filstar XP3 seems to be working well) but I chose it because it was there. I didn't know if I was doing well here or not. My hex has an AquaClear filter hanging on it now along with my Fluval 404 on which I changed the discharge nozzle to cut down the turbulance. I plan to leave the Fluval 404 but remove the AquaClear and run a powerhead to power the difusser. Here again I want to minimize the turbulance but be sure to have enough to thoroughly mix the CO2 and water. I guess I should have explained better to begin with. :hehe:

Eheim pimp #128, 55gal 13x20x48, Eheim Pro 2227, CO2 injected, into the filter breather tube,4x 55w Pcs , 12 hr light cycle (sunrise/sunset simulated), Milwaukee SMS 122, faulty bubble counter replaced with M3 bubble counter..... moderately Planted, Plantex CSM+B and ferts
