Default CO2 line into HOB

I was wondering if anybody has heard of anyone successfully Running a DIY CO2 line into a HOB filter. I am trying to eliminate as many lines into my tank is possible. What enough CO2 get into the water and tank to make this worthwhile? Or is it a much better idea to continue continue to run the CO2 directly into the tank. I had a powerhead running next to my DIY CO2 which moved it throughout the tank. I have since added shrimp and removed the powerhead because there was too much flow. Now my CO2 is on the opposite side of the tank as my HOB filter. Should I just move CO2 to the same side as the filter so the moving water circulates the CO2? Or can I directly inject the CO2 into the water in the HOB filter? Thanks for the help.
