Hello everyone,

I've been curious about using a CO2 diffuser instead of an air stone, air stones produce big bubbles that go to the top and then when they break the surface, they splash water which sometimes gets into my lighting or outside the tank.

And when the water evaporates, I end up with minerals stuck to surfaces that is hard to remove.

So, looking at how the CO2 diffuser spreads CO2, I was wondering if anyone has tried using a CO2 diffuser in place of an air stone and what has been your experiences.


Thank you for sharing.

I've used an air stone before and it works but co2 doesn't diffuse as good. Better off using a chopstick

He meant to plug an air pump into an air tube and then into a co2 diffuser to aerate his tank. Not using an air stone as a co2 diffuser. I would like to know if air pumps really can push its limits :icon_cool
