I am using that diffuser currently and I would not call it huge.

As a matter of fact I have never seen one smaller personally.

Weird I am seeing 2 different pictures.

I see which one you are taking about in the second pic.

What I saw in the OP for whatever reason was a pic of the Fluval nano diffuser. ( has black rubber surrounding the ceramic disc) That diffuser can be bought for 6 to 9 dollars.

That is much smaller and should accomplish what you are looking for although I am beginning to think disc diffusers suck also.

Maybe I'm wrong but it seems more like in-line is THE only way for good diffusion.

I do have my eye on greenleaf aquariums diffusers (ceramic but a tube as opposed to a disc)... thinking about trying that before I purchase another canister filter JUST so I can in-line diffuse my co2.

All that being said, I can promise you will eventually regret buying the little Fluval co2 cartridge system in general.

Unless of course you are sponsored by them and get it all for free.

^^ Agreed.

I'd look at a little Aquatek Mini paintball setup instead. Price is more upfront but not bad (around $100), but you can use any kind of diffuser (or reactor) you want, and fills for paintball tanks are super cheap. You'll go through those little Fluval tanks fast enough that the bigger setup will be cheaper in the long run.

Keep that monster reactor out of the nano tank where every inch counts and use something inline (completely out) or even a simple glass nano diffuser is really cheap and small by comparison.
