Default Question regarding spraybar/c02

Keeping shrimp in a biocube is pretty tricky. I've had to put tiny prefilters over the inlet & had to do the same for the outlet. Problem with the outlet is simply flow..I've greatly had to reduce it because at full flow the inlet just couldn't keep up & water would overflow to the back. So I've had the outlet choked down pretty good for the past couple months, everything works fine but the tank overall doesn't get much flow with the outlet the way it is.

So Today I fabricated a custom spray bar that allows better flow through out the tank, hopefully eliminating dead spots. I run c02 & the spray bar is about 1 inch above the surface. Will I lose a lot of c02 with it being that high? is there a certain angle it should be set? Imagine this is the tank from front view [_]. I have the bar on the left side shooting water down
