I use the Ocean Spray bottles because they give me a better and tighter seal than the 2L bottles. I found that in using the glass diffusers, the 2L's were more prone to develop leaks from the caps.
As long as the bottles are sealed tightly, you can use pretty much any nano diffuser. I have tested on (6) different ones successfully. Unfortunately not the Fluval one you mentioned. I'll have to go out and take a look at it.
I think I'll be giving your method a go here as soon as I get some Ocean Spray bottles. That makes sense about the seals. The threading on those bottles is different.
As mentioned above, I would also be interested in knowing which diffusers worked with your setup. If you are unable to post them due to forum rules, I'd appreciate a PM, if it's not too much trouble!
I'd also like to know more about the recipe and why it works. The Jell-O dissolves slowly so that it delivers sugar to the yeast steadily, right? What is the purpose of the rice, then?
