I've been told it will spike less if you let it be overnight. I am currently just using an airstone as I havent decided on another method and have $0 in my budget. I am considering the hose in the bottom of my HOB. NOt sure how effective it would be.

Welcome to the Planted Tank, and congrats on resurrecting a 3 year old thread

Feeding CO2 bubbles into the HOB filter should be a bit more efficient than the airstone method. I have been bubbling CO2 into a AquaClear HOB for many years to enrich my 10gal tank.
