Dual heater, co2 reactor Question

If one were to make a DIY dual heater+ diffuser rig how much of a hit would you hit on a eheim 2028. Being I have a discus tank I'm fond of the idea of a back up heater and this WOULD work well if it would still flow well.

Output of eheim to the BOTTOM of a diy heater chamber flowing upward to an U bend into a downward flowing co2 reactor (Co2 injection point in this section also) to another U bend to another upward flowing DIY heater (top exit) to the filter output in tank.

Otherwise I have other ideas but I thought this may work but I'm not sure just how much of a gph hit I would take.

Thanks all

David

that's going to make a HUGE hit on your gph I would think.

I haven't played with a rex reactor for yrs as I'm currently injecting into a 2229 eheim wet dry so I don't remember the gph hits it all makes. If this is a no go another route and use it on another tank in a straight shot and no co2
