Any advice guys?

Cut the portion/segment that goes into the nano diffuser and try inserting again.

Re: Keeping co2 tube attached

Hi guys

I have a nano diffuser, I like the suggestion of silicone tubing. I'll let you know how it goes.

talontsiawd Try different tubing. I really like silicone airline tubing if you are running low pressure but it doesn't work well at high pressure (had to swap it out when I got an Atomic diffuser and up my pressure to 40 PSI). Vinyl tubing gave me the most issues with stuff like this, even with DIY CO2.

puopg What diffuser are you using? I had a lot of trouble with my ADA diffuser, and finally i just shoved it as far as i possibly could and it never moved. Took like 5 times to finally get it secure.

gSTiTcH What diffuser? You should have a lip on the inlet that the tube slides over. Might need to heat the tubing a bit to make it fit.

Sugardaddy1979 Well that's a great idea!
