My two plans

These are the two ideas i want to implement. The simple and more complicated. I prefer to do the more complicated set up. I have two canister filters to work with. Eheim 2215 and Eheim ecco 2233. The tank is 36*18*18. Any advice?

Are you combining in and outlets? or going separate?

I believe most people put the co2 line at the bottom of the reactor or shove the co2 line down to the bottom from the top.My Am1000 is designed that way.

Good point. I had actually read about that many weeks back but forgot. Thanks for the reminder, i'll put the CO2 line more towards the middle of the reactor.

Also i'm thinking i'd like to do just 1 input split it into 2 and same for the output. Less holes to be drilled. Thats what i'm thinking unless i find out a better way.

You could try that, if it doesn't work maybe piggyback a Rainbow lifeguard pump in there.
