Powerhead Reactor


Well guys I just setup a Jello 2 liter CO2 for my 55 gallon (i know it isnt enough but hey any CO2 helps some right? Plus its just wisteria) And right now since it produces to much co2 for my cup defuser to defuse, I just have it running into a powerhead that is going at 220gph. I was wondering if some how catch the little bubbles of CO2 that come from the out-take of the powerhead and redirect it to another powerhead so it can make even littler bubbles? Also does anyone have a good link on a Inline reactor for DIY CO2? thanks

Since you got a canister an inline reactor is the way to go. Sorry no links.

dude.. use a bigger diffusor.. or make two of them at the same level in the tank (so that it bubbles in both)....I have been considering using a long (like about 12 inches) square or box setup..(12 in long by about 2 deep... in the back of the tank)...this is wasted space in most tanks anyway.
