What would be the prefered method for CO2 distribution into my 75G aquarium-
A CO2 reactor or a more simple CO2 diffuser? I am leaning towards a reactor. I think I will get better CO2 distribution throughout the aquarium than I would with a simple diffuser. Any other opinions?

I would personally use a reactor on a tank of that size.

A reactor is more efficient and less susceptible to problems caused by impurities clogging the diffuser membrane.
