Best co2 setup for Edge 12G

Looking for infos about what to use in a fluval edge tank to diffuse co2.

I have an inline atomizer in my 90G with external canister filter and no idea what to use in the edge tank.

Co2 glass diffuser? with ceramic? atomizer? I'm confuse..

thank you

Personally I would hide it in the HOB. The chopstick method would be cheap and looks to be a good way to diffuse it. An atomizer in tank would just create air pockets at the top. In filter gives it a chance to get into the water first

Nice ty!

You think this is as efficient as having a glass diffuser in the bottom of the tank?

Its debatable.. how ever.. the edge being sealed and a diffuser at the bottom.. little bubbles will accumulate under the glass which would take away from the look.

With the in filter one it will "mostly" dissolve in the filter and you want have that issue.

i'm sure its not as efficient.. but its more ascetically pleasing.. your choice
