From what I've heard, some of the cheap glass diffusers you get on ebay are bad quality, can break easily, and require more pressure to let out co2, so I guess the best place to get them would be from somewhere like greenleafaquariums or adana-usa, which are a tad more expensive than the ones on ebay, but are more consistent in quality, or, you can just use a chopstick like I do

the cheapest I've found are shipped from hong kong and they are like $5- $15 I use them with DIY 2 liter bottles so the pressure must not have to be that high. . . i think the seller i got mine from is aquakh or something like that- it takes a couple weeks but they're cheap and the customer service was good i haven't had any problems with the 6-7 I've bought (various sizes and designs)

hope that helps
cheers-K

Are those working well with the DIY? Because if they do, I may order some
