I bought this thinking I could do away with the 7-up look. I like the idea but I do believe that the clear container should have been longer for more faster flow rate. I'm using this on my 110g tank to replace my Atomic diffuser.
I have a Eheim 2262 that i connected too and I see a lot of micro bubbles dancing around in my tank? My co2 is like a stream just to get my DC to turn green by the end of the day.
I've check for leaks an every thing is ok , I do see a lot of co2 passing thru the sponge by the force of my filter flow, should I replace the sponge or will this slow the flow down if a more finer sponge was use? How about adding some micro bio balls to break up the force of the water going in?
