What other ways can I defuse co2? I tried with one of those white airstones but that seemed to clog up overnight. Right now I have it running into my AC200 intake will that work or should I run it into a small powerhead? Anyone have any pics on ideas? Thanks

As long as your AquaClear doesn't stall from the air running through it, it will be fine. If the filter stalls, then a small powerhead is ideal. I've got several small powerheads sitting around from my reef days so I just went with that route.
