What if I placed in my HOB filter That should spread the dissolved CO2 more evenly. (What do you think?) It mostly a trail run 48 tablets in 48 days what happens. Am getting bored by just sprinkling 1.4ml of excel on the surface of the tank.

According to the recommended dosage of the product (Hobby Sanoplant) it states to place one tablet per 50 liters once every week.
