Just tried this, works really well! Going to re-make mine though as the seal isn't very good, but still diffuses the C02 nicely.

Apologies for photo quality, taken on iPhone and my tank only has the the moonlights on at the moment.

hahahahaha... never heard about bleach or sandpaper?
its easy to clean it, just soak into bleach for 10 minutes and after that rinse with clean water, or rub it slowly with very fine sandpaper.

I'm using ceramic CO2 atomizer like pict below for over a year, and until now never find problem with it
