I have diy yeast reactor on my tank. I have someone in my house who loves to make new ones and knows pretty well what he is doing so its basically like a pressurized system for me! he even keeps two of them going at once just in case. now i want a better way than shooting it through my filter to diffuse the co2 because right now i am at 15ppm at 3.1 wpg and want to be more like 20 ppm. Suggestions on a diffuser/reactor for a 50 gal.

I have and like the PlantGuild product:

I should note that you can buy the smaller version of this product from Robert, sponsor of this board.

Check out my reactor page. IT has a 2" DIY reactor that could be made smaller for your purpose. I have made one using 1" PVC and everything should work, just haven't had the time to test it yet.
