| | Comments Please on a CO2 Diffusion concept
Hi im new to planted aquariums and these forums have been great
i've learnt so much over the past couple of days. I have an idea for Co2 diffusion that i have pondered on while reading about the DIY CO2 reactors, the only problem i have had is how to get the CO2 into the water and the idea i have thought of will suit my tank (a 10 gallon tank with a over head canister filter) the canister drops the water from the last chamber into the water so i figured that attaching an extra chamber underneth the water surface with the water frm the filter going directly into this, then some filter media (not sure what would be dest either filter wool, gravel or bio balls) to break up the bubbles coming from a CO2 injection from underneth all this, then finally a exit above the filter media. I have provided a picture of the method below and would use one of the simple DIY CO2 method detailed on these forums using a soft drink bottle. I curently don't have a CO2 system in place and of course the idea of spending a heap of money on something that i could possibly make seems like a more appealing idea. As iam only new to this im am not sure if this would work so any advice any one could give to me would be great and i of course would be very great full!
thanks in advance Jake
