quick co2 question plz help

I am trying out diy co2 for my 20g high. I would like to know which is the best way to dissolve co2 in my tank. Should i get the Hagen ladder or the 2inch reno micro bubbler ? Also is 3.25 watts per gallon enough to keep most plants thriving n healthy for the long run or should i add more. thanks alot

I would say the Hagen ladder. It's what I have in two of my tanks.

another vote for hagen ladder.
3.25wpg is enough for any plant, especially if you have power compact lights.
