My new co2 diffuser
Just wanted to share, and I posted this in a couple other threads, my new co2 reactor/diffuser. Over christmas my nephew got these little hexbug toys. I saw them and *bing* I had an idea. I took that container, used a fitting that was being thrown away from an anesthesia circuit from work, and connected it to a mini elite powerhead.
I decided to go this route cause I didnt want little tiny bubble or gurgling in my tank. It is working out pretty good so far. The only downside, if your co2 flow is too great, it will airlock the powerhead. I only had that problem when I started it and let too much co2 in. I dont have the flow turned up all the way on the powerhead, so if thats an issue I am sure you can turn it up to push the co2 down more and prevent that.
There are a series of holes drilled in the bottom of the container near the floss to let the water out.
