For any tank that has a canister, I would go with an in-line reactor. They can be easily made, or you can buy them prefabricated.

Most work on the principle of reverse flow. The water flows down a column while the co2 tries to bubble up it. The counter currents can quickly dissolve 100% of the co2.

Do a search for Cerges' or Rexx Grigg's designs. I made a Rexx, but the Cerges looks much easier, and possibly reusable since it uses a standard 10" water filter housing.

I would only use a diffuser on a small tank that only has HOB filters.
