I like the idea of pumping the CO2 directly into the return of the filter. I have too much stuff hanging in the tank already.

Does anyone know of a diffuser that will that will fit in the return tubing of a Fluval 407?

One more question.
Does anyone have experience placing the CO2 probe into a HOB filter. Again, want to limit the stuff hinging in the aquarium.

Thanks,

Fluval offers fittings to incorporate a co2 reactor in the return hose.

I've been reading a lot about CO2 injecting, and the risk to plants and even fish if done incorrectly.

I travel and my wife is in charge of the fish while I'm gone. She does a good job, but if something is going to go south it will happen on her watch. So, I don't want to load her up with stuff to do and monitor.

It seems that a simple way to do this that might the plants just a little kick would be to use half (quarter) of the recommended Flourish dose every day.

Can anybody comment on the pros and cons of that approach? Aside that the plants will not grow as fast.

Did you mean Flourish Excel? Flourish is the micronutrient mix product that Seachem offers, so it won't be a substitute for CO2.

If you did happen to mean Excel, then it's not as effective as CO2, and is relatively expensive in the long run (there's also the hassle of needing to dose it everyday).
