Inline cO2 diffuser question


I finally got my 2213 and have a 5lb tank lined up. The hunt for a reg is on and I want to run my co2 inline. Based on what I have read it appears I need a 13mm one? Who has one thats considered "good" by the community?

CAL AQUA LABS 13 mm Inline CO2 Diffuser

I also like the Atomic inline diffuser, how ever its 8/12mm, 12/16mm, and i think they make another larger one too, but I am running DIY CO2 reactor, cheaper and I have a large cabinet to hide it inside. As far as minimalist and pretty CAL AQUA

There's various brands of them too. UP Aqua makes one. I can't tell the difference in efficiency between either of them but the UP Aqua one is cheaper. eBay item 130812744574 is pretty much what you're looking for.

Make sure the regulator you get can run 30+ psi or you're gonna have a bad time.

I laughed because I visualized that meme picture. We definitely need one of those for the forum.

That defintely affects my Regulator search. I was hoping AquaTek would get theirs back in stock, now to find out if its rated to work at 30psi

Check out the Ista max mix too. You'd need the medium one. I have the large on my 29 gallon and it works well. No 7up bubbles in my tank.

Silent at night, barely audible during the day if it's in a cabinet and adjusted right. Definitely quieter than an HOB filter splashing. With the Ista reactor, you won't need a 30+ psi feed from the regulator. I run mine at less than 10.
