its not wrong on this side of the tank but the design does not allow to you to put it on the right side without starring at the tubing first.

Ah I know what you mean Chiahead.

Instead of using the suction cup it came with and the protruding part, you could always purchase a separate airline tubing suction cup and use it to hold the stem side against the glass wall.

What size diameter would you say the ceramic disc is? Quarter, or nickle sized?

I think its 1/2 inch. The 2000 is 1 inch and the 5000 is 2 inches.

Ugh... you people drive me nuts... now I'm going to have to spend some money.

Did you look at his eBay store? They have some really nice stuff. Most plant web pages have a couple things, but he has everything you could want. Multiple choices of different items. I have recently become disillusioned with my inline CO2 reactor adn wanted to try a large diffuser for my 75. I think the 5000 may be it.

WOW... stainless Riccia mesh. Where is that Visa card?

Thanks for the posts everyone

Ben

Thanks!

They're on eBay.

I'm glad my ADA Beetle diffuser from adgshop.com has the CO2 inlet tube on the right corner!

Yours is different fron the one pictured ...

The picture on eBay:


Strange.

Here is a LINK to his eBay store.

I think he might have a web page too. He is an APC sponsor.

I thought it was supposed to have 2 suction cups so that you could put the diffusor right in a corner of a tank with one suction cup on each side of the corner, otherwise what makes it different than any other glass diffusor?

I agree good observation Robert.N ow that I think if it that I believe that's how it's suppose to be inserted in the aquarium: in the corner, thereby hiding the CO2 line between the corner edges.

The only caveat of that would be: is it possible to force the CO2 line to remain directly flush against the corner edges to hide it?

Well, thats what I thought. When I was looking at Jeffs products, that is the one that stood out to me as the most unique. The fact that it fits into a corner I thought was pretty cool. I can get all of these from China just like the two that I already have. There is at least a dozen different ones. All they are is just different shapes and sizes... like the ones that have the coils inside that leed up to the bowl and ceramic disk, all of those. I notice the rhino comes in different sizes and some include only one suction cup while others have two. I would ask for the extra suction cup, otherwise how is it different from the one they sell for 3 dollars?

I am going to have to look at my sources I guess. I don't see the point in carrying 12 different models of glass diffusors when they all work the same, but if that is what people want I guess I will look into it too.
