My DIY CO2 Diffuser/reactor
I always wanted the best utilization of CO2 in the aquarium. Using the venturi of a power-head was an easy but wasteful process. So what I had done is used a 1/2" elbow and a 1.5L pet bottle to trap the bubbles. When I used a 1/2" elbow the power head would not suck CO2 from the DIY system unless a pressure had built up. That meant that some CO2 would remain unutilized. Today I used a 1" elbow, and although my DIY is depleted today, this gadget is still drawing CO2.
If you have a choice, you have a problem, till you elect your choice. No choice, no problem, only consequences, learn to live with them.
