I know this should probably go in the DIY section but I thought I would get a quicker and more responses in this section so I am posting here.

Anyways in the DIY section and from word of mouth that an easy way to mix co2 from your DIY Co2 bottle is to run an air hose from the bottle and into the hang on the back power filter. Well I have a Whisper mini power filter and my airline tube from the bottle wont fit into the little holes in the intake tube.

How would I accomplish this? Do I drill a hole into the intake tube and attach the airline hose to the tube or what? Whats the best place if any to place the airline onto the intake tube?

Thanks for the help.

get a small rubber band and place it just below the intake so the bubble gets sucked into the intake tube, u might want to use a airstone to make the bubles smaller because a big bubble hits the impeller it does make a loud crunch when it breaks it up

also if you place it below the intake as Rdracer66 said it acts as a poor mans bubble counter =)

10 gallon low-tech Betta bowl...for now.
