For my ten gallon I was planning on hooking up my CO2 line to my AC mini's intake. The filter chops the bubbles and dissolves them for me...saving money and time from doing a DIY or buying a reactor. I read on a few websites though not to do this because the CO2 will starve the aerobic bacteria in the filter of oxygen, decreasing efficiency and turning them anaerobic – where there already is plenty.

Can anyone validate/disprove this? In theory it mabey correct, but if experience says it doesn't cause problems, I don't see why not.
