I totally disagree. My tank is 210 gallon and I achieve my optimal lvl of co2. You just have to do it right. If you extend line into sump, it doesn't touch the air, minimum co2 loss.

I'm surprised you never went with a sump. It would get rid of all those extra filters, co2 reactors, and extra power usage. You would only have to clean one filter!!!!
