For my ten gallon I was planning on hooking up my CO2 line to my AC mini's intake. The filter chops the bubbles and dissolves them for me...saving money and time from doing a DIY or buying a reactor. I read on a few websites though not to do this because the CO2 will starve the aerobic bacteria in the filter of oxygen, decreasing efficiency and turning them anaerobic where there already is plenty.

Can anyone validate/disprove this? In theory it mabey correct, but if experience says it doesn't cause problems, I don't see why not.
