You would want the 1000, I have a 2000 on my 55, it think its too large for my 29 so Im getting a 1000 for it as well, if it dosent work Ill use the other 2000 that I have

I have been following this thread from the beginning and find it absolutely fascinating because I'm playing with the idea of using glass diffusers in my tanks.
I'd like to see some followups from people who are now using them and how well they are working.

They work great. I'm using the rhino 1000 right now, and plant growth is rapid. Pearling isn't a sign of plant health, but it is a sign of Oxygen over-saturation, and I got to say that buy the after noon each day, my tank is really over-saturated

I concur... I have used alot of different methods of adding the co2 to the tank and I like the glass diffusers the best. I also think they are most efficient. Except on very large tanks where you would need more than 1 glass diffusers.

Can you folks give me an idea of which size diffuser to buy for a particular tank?
I have a 5.5 gal. and a 10, both of which would use the nano, I assume.
I also have 2 - 55's and a 40, but don't know which size would be best for either of them.
Your thoughts?

I used a 5000 in my 55. It may be overkill, but I have niticed that my CO2 diffusion rate is better.

I think the 5000 would be fine in the 55's and 40....its really not that large anyways and it does have better diffusion than the smaller 2000.

After following this thread for some time now I decided to purchase some of these diffusers for my tanks. I took a picture of all three of them next to a measuring tape so everyone can get an idea of the size differences. Also, it appears that the 1000 is the only one that does not have two suction cup options.
