Small inline co2 diffuser?

I'm purchasing a zoo med nano 10 for my 6 gallon edge. It's been having algae issues since day one and I think that flow and co2 inconsistencies are to blame. I'm constantly fighting bluegreen, brush, and hair algae and I'm tired of it. The way I've been feeding co2 into my aquarium is into my canister filter that I have now but it gets trapped and only comes out of the filter every once in a while in a big "burp". I am trying to find an inline diffuser that will work with a pump having around 80 gph. Is there one out there or a design I can make myself?

Great, I'll look into it. Now I wonder if paintball co2 will be ok?

Yeah for sure. Just get a 20oz or 24oz tank and that should last you for months
