scottytank Thanks for the advice! I did a hybrid of both suggestions and put it right of the intake so it is both near the intake and under the flow. I can see the bubbles going into the intake as well as being pushed around in the flow. Drop checker was green leaning yellow in no time.

AnotherHobby I have a 12 gallon, but it should be similar. Mine is under the output, and as the bubbles rise and get to the top, the output pushes them back down into the tank. The diffusion is good, but I do get a lot of bubbles on the top of the tank. It doesn't bug me though because the plants look great.

tex627 Right under the intake is what I do! This way, more CO2 diffuses into the water.

Best placement for CO2 diffuser in Fluval Edge 6G?

Anyone have any input on a successful location for a ceramic diffuser (Atomic 45mm) in the 6G Edge? Im just using the stock HOB filter and am curious about where to stick the diffuser for the best distribution.
