I'm not going to say they are all the same, but many of the pricier ones are the same ones being sold on ebay for much less from vendors like aquatic magic. Same goes for some of the LED lights, etc. They are just re-branded. I've had a Rhinox for over 5 years and still producing that fine mist.

I believe I have the same fixed output regulator as you right? the Azoo one?

Which co2 regulator are you using the rhinox on?

Granted, nothing is really wrong with Rhinox. It just depends on the style of diffuser you prefer.

As far as the comment about "cheap" ceramic discs go, I've had more and finer bubbles come from cheap eBay diffusers (the up-aqua ones) than I've had come from a brand new $140 ADA Pollen Glass Mini. I think each ceramic disc is a bit of a hit and miss situation, but that's just my personal opinion.

I'm using an Aquatek mini regulator for paintball. I believe the fixed output pressure is 30 to 40 psi.

Okay... So I was pretty pleased with the NAG-Aqua Music Note, I ordered another one. This time I ordered the mini version (which is probably equivalent to the Do!Aqua MUSIC GLASS 10D - 10mm).

I haven't had time to test it yet.. I'll probably do that sometime within the next day or so.

Here's some pics

How are those rhniox? Are they knock-offs like this here NAG? Lol

Please post it here. That was sort of one of the reasons I started this thread... affordable but effective options than spending an arm and a leg for overpriced glassware. Also to put the "you get what you pay for" adage to the test.. haha

you got it! I think I have to order another one actually. I just won a raok for the fluval disposable co2 system. I've seen someone else use the rhinox with it also and his tank rooks amazing.

going to rescape my 2.5 now.. hehe

^^ Sounds good!

Well I just installed this NAG mini on my 6g (the other NAG I ordered is going to the 60-F). I used one of those glass U's connectors (also from China) to give the co2 tubing to come over the rim a cleaner look.

This is approx. 2 BPS from an Aquatek mini regulator. Overall, I'm pleased once again! This is not comparing two of the 'exact" NAG-Aqua diffusers, but hey, both perform well for the price -- certainly better than my UP Aqua diffuser!

So...got my rhinox today and here's my review.

I cracked it in 30 seconds while trying to slide down the tubing.

Makes me sad that my new super strength broke the glassware I mean I have been working out.....

I had that long diffuser and loved it until i broke it. I only use inline diffusers now, but i'd get the NAG again.
