The surface area of the media in the canister filters is probably one of the best reasons for going with a canister. Lots more biological filtration.

I use an Up Aqua inline diffuser and it is quiet and does the job. Bubbles are really tiny. I like the idea of using a diffuser that completely dissolves the CO2, but I went the easier way.

I got the 20 for my 10 gallon but the connection to the tank isn't tight. I'm using the clear connectors on a standard Petco glass 10. Any suggestions?

Plants cannot use CO2 in the dark so you are wasting your CO2. Also, by running it in the dark you are increasing the CO2 in your water and could gas your fish. Timer is the way to go. Good luck!

You'll probably want something to move your water around. A powerhead with sponge filter is great, but you'll need to do regular maintenance. Good for bioload. Your other option to just move water...

You may want to cut back on feeding your fish so often. Perhaps once a day or every other day. Fish don't need that much food, and extra food or fish waste can alter water characteristics.

Another option could be to go with a T5NO. Then you wouldn't have algae issues. Save up for pressurized CO2.

I agree. It would be safe. Might have algae and pests, so let it dry out to kill anything along for the ride.

It is hard to keep your CO2 values constant with DIY CO2. I did it for a couple of years with cherry shrimp without a problem (they can handle variation), but it did affect the tank.
