Huh?

A diffuser with good water flow. A reactor would work well, too.

Check out this thread it gives you a guide to set up DIY CO2. a standard powerhead below the water level gives you the current.

Have the diffuser underneath your outflow of your filter, or make a Barr Venturi Reactor.

I can't see it getting any better than an inline reactor.

Granted you have a filter output strong enough to power one and the room to fit it.

I made a simple diffuser with a powerhead and micro bubler airstone:


The powerhead is a Powersweep unit that rotates its output to aid in circulation, and as a result the co2 mist ends up getting blown from one side of the tank to the other. I thought that sounded interesting so I thought to try it, and might as well incorperate it into my co2 system as well since I wasnt thuroughly impressed with the glass difuser I was using.
