But you know, I am starting to question the idea that because a reactor dissolves the CO2 completely into the water it is therefore more efficient. I find that my reactor dissolves the CO2 perfectly (no visible bubbles) and yet it takes me around 8 BPS to maintain a decent level of CO2 in a 54g tank. Meanwhile, I keep hearing about people using diffusers at 2 or 3 BPS for similarly sized tanks.
Now certainly there are lots of factors at play here, and I'm still trying to find out why I SEEM to need such a high bubble count to keep my drop checker at a nice color. I have some, but not much surface agitation (current, no ripples) and good circulation in the tank. Sometimes I considering going back to a mister, but man I love my clear, clear water!
