Spraybar and co2 distribution

Assuming an efficient reactor and a filter rated at 6+ times water capacity in gph, will co2 be well distributed? My intake is about 18" deep while the spraybar sits at least 15" above that, creating gentle ripples at the surface?

I realize co2 is the toughest measurement , so thanks.

i use a similar set up and it works great for me. you should be fine. i suggest that you get a drop checker to be sure though. you can move it around to different points in your tank see if it is working.

There are 2 types of people on this forum. Those that have algae, and those that lie and say they don't.

Thanks Chad. My big concern is getting co2 down to the substrate, but that gives me more confidence. I'll take your drop checker advice.
