Oh & a lot of people complain about a white fuzz that starts to get at the end of the chopstick or diy diffuser with diy c02...... I used to have that problem But then What I did was run the airline tubing to a hard plastic tubing, then into the chopstick..now No problems of buildup what so ever, been going off the same batch of c02 for 1 1/2 months now
Yes i had that white stuff on my sillicone tubing as well. I've just tried putting it into my HOB filter and the blade is chopping up to tiny bubbles. This method looks pretty good to me.

It doesn't need to be the Elite filter. Any very small internal filter - powerhead with a plastic filter chamber attached on the inlet - will work just as well. Bigger ones also work, but are more of a visual problem in the tank. I use one made from a spare filter I had laying around, which isn't even sold anymore.

DIY CO2 Diffuser

Hello!
I was wondering if the bell method for diffusing diy co2 would and was also wondering how efficient it is. I cant find any glass diffusers and most probably will not buy a powerhead or filter for the diffusing. Any other method for diffusing would be appreciated as i want to have HC and dwarf hairgrass carpets.

Thanks for reading this.
