Going to switch from an in-tank diffuser to go with inline CO2 injection, but am debating between a glass Co2 diffuser (kinda cool because it can suction on to the outside of the tank and you will see the little ceramic diffuser pushing bubbles into the inflow line), or a plastic one (which will hopefully be hidden in the cabinet).

Anyone have experience with these? I'm leaning towards the glass but am worried about the lines popping off the glass ends, and cleaning.

Thoughts?

I have used the niloc while it is fine, it does not have the option to be taken apart and cleaned. I'm always a nope with glass , too fragile.

This one works well and is sturdy ,replaceable elements and cleanable. I love mine.
