Nano CO2

I am curious about how other people have made reactors, diffusers, etc. for small tanks. I have heard of one person who puts a cigarette filter into the end of the airline and of course putting the bubbles into the filter intake. What are some other ideas you guys have come up with?

Cigarette filter? <cough>

I have used dried pieces of small branches from the linden / lime tree (Tilia). Works well, but you need a lot of pressure. Some of the wooden air stones might work the same way, and glass diffusers of course.

Yeah, I was thinking about trying the same thing with some poly-fill stuff they use for stuffing pillows. AKA filter floss.
