Chopstick actually works great until a slime coat actually develops on the actual surface and you need to actually replace it. Not a big deal, cheap and fast. But tThe cheap Elite filter gizmo that we are discussing here does not need any cleaning if setup as described on page 1.

Also a chopstick cannot be used as a difuser on larger tanks. But it is tiny, while the Elite gizmo would be ugly in a nano tank.

Here, I have discissed in lengths the pros and cons of an item that costs nothing and another one that costs $8. Hope everybody is extatic now!

And here's a (blurry) video on how to make this amazing contraption and save "mucho dinero" in the process:

If I was trying to take credit, I would have never posted on this site to begin with.
Props to Niko 100%
Sorry, I'm new to this forum thing.

I watched the YouTube video on Niko’s mini filter CO2 regulator, as well as the video for the Ocean Spray bottle DIY CO2 system. They were both clear, concise, and very easy to follow.

Well done jackspratt! But, you should have given credit to our resident guru. You sound like a Canuck.
