Does this Co2 diffusion look good enough for DHG?
Currently have a 20 long tank with diy yeast-sugar co2 with ecocomplete substrate and normal sand substrate on top. The tank contains seiryu rocks for shrimp that I will later add and it has a 30 Aquaclear with a corner sponge filter rated for 10 gallons.
My glass diffuser broke and I had no other means of diffusing the co2. I put the tubing inside of the intake of my HOB, but it was too loud. Instead, I used a cigarette filter and set it under the outflow of the filter rather than the intake because the intake has a sponge that doesn't very well absorb the co2. This sponge is purposed for my future shrimp. I'm wondering if the co2 is good enough in terms of diffusion being placed where it is. The sponge filter is in on 24/7 and was wondering if the surface agitation causes a loss of co2. Thanks!
PS. just put in dwarf hairgrass two days ago and I will be dosing with API liquid co2 (2mL) daily to help. Am I overkilling or nah
