yes, you can use DIY CO2 and the glass/ceramic combos...it jus takes time..and wastes CO2 towards the end when you cant make enough pressure...also the jelly coating that will appear on the diffuser after some time is a pain to clean...

so, like always...I point people in the direction of CO2 reactors

you can get them pretty cheap (from China)

or build your own for slightly less

either way...jus add a powerhead and they are close to 100% efficient..which makes them about 812342x better than glass/ceramic and about 20x better than step ladders (Ive bought all three)

I diffuse CO2 through my XP2 canister. I now have pressurized, but I used to diffuse DIY through the canister also. If the BPS is too high, it will "burp" on you. Otherwise it's a very good method. Normally I don't see any bubbles coming out of the spraybar at all.
