DIY Co2 diffusor out of a Bubble wall

I just made he jump into pressurized CO2 with a Taam Rio single Co2 controller. The Co2 controller works okay but would be much better with needle valve linked to it. But anyway My Hagen bubble ladder worked great with the non pressurized systems. I found it a little lacking with the pressurized set up so i got the idea to run it through a approximately 1" piece of a Top Fin Bubble wall. Works great! Looks like the one GLA is selling now.

Here are two short videos click the pic.

mmm you probably aren't getting very good diffusion. anything normally intended for an air pump is gonna give really poor diffusion. it's better than the bubble ladder, but still pretty poor. all that co2 is rising to the surface and escaping the water. a good diffuser will create very tiny bubbles that dissolve into the water before reaching the surface.

just get a cheap glass/ceramic diffuser off E-bay
