I recently decided to upgrade my CO2 system and replace the power reactor
that came with the "all in one kit" I got from an online dealer.I have a 2026
(now Fluval 405) in my 80g with it`s spraybar at the top on the right side spraying across the tank,a 2215 with it`s spraybar mounted vertically by the
reactor to help circulate the CO2.I just got one of those ADA beetle diffusers
and was told to have it on the opposite side of the spraybar.Since the reactor is gone I put the 2215 spraybar under the other one to help create current for the beetle.Don`t think it`s reaching,bubbles going straight up.
Should I reposition the beetle from the corner and put the 2215 spraybar by
it to push the bubbles around?This is my first experience with a diffuser.
Thanks,
Rich B.

You might try moving the beetle closer to the spray bar until you notice the mist being blown around the tank, but from my experience with a pollen glass you're always going to have some bubbles going straight up. So I wouldn't stress over that as long as you notice them being blown around the tank also. I have a similar set up on my 55 except I have the pollen glass 30 in the middle of the tank on the back glass which works for me.
