My DIY co2 ceramic/ladder/power head


So in my search for better co2 dissolution I decided to combine 3 types of already know co2 diffusion methods

1 ceramic diffuser fluval
1 fluval 402 with the media tube thing
3 plastic pots ( plants come in)

The bubbles come out of diffuser that's inside the bottom of the power head cylnider basket.
I have 3 pots back to back wrapped with filter pads in side the basket so the bubbles can travel threw the center and get caught up inside the basket.
And of course bubbles that get to the propeller get destroyed. Although the bubbles really seem to be dissolving inside and the ones that make it out of power head are so small they don't exist
