For my diy co2 setups I used the cheap Glass Nano diffusers on Ebay.

I used and still using a small powerhead with the CO2 tubing feeding to the intake. It is placed at the bottom of the tank and the water flow is going across the entire tank bottom. I am using a paintball CO2 system. You get this nice little carbonated look in your tank with ALL the fine mist of bubbles flowing around though.
