Default ADA Beetle Diffuser Knockoff ...

Looks like it didn't take long for this to happen:
http://cgi.ebay.com/Rhinox-2000-Japa...QQcmdZViewItem



I admit, I could be a little bummed if this thing (@ $25) works as well as my ~$95 ADA Beetle! If someone buys one, let me know whether it's a good performer.

Im planning on buying the Rhinox1000 which is for 20gal and up for 9.99 + 5$ shipping. I too would like to know if its a good performer. I plan to use it for my 29 gal DIY co2 setup. My other choice would be the Co2 diffuser : 3 coils which is said to be Compatible for pressurized Co2 tanks and DIY yeast bottles. It would be alot easier to ship for me since the guy i would be shipping it from lives closer so shipping would come in a day or 2 most likely and the nice thing is i have already ordered something from him once and all went well.

Not to steal the thread, but...speaking of knockoffs: this looks eeriely similar to the AquaBotanic website. Hmm.

Actually...Aquatic-Store.com is the same owner (Marcus Russo). AquaBotanic is not the same entity and probably just using the same template/software as stated.

As for knock-offs in asia...that's the norm. Most of the countries over there ignore most other nations' copyright laws.

The ebay auctions that I bought them off of had a make offer button on them where you can make a lower offer, the seller can accept or decline.
maybe he stopped doing that.

I am currently using 2 rhinox 1000's. They are awesome. Nice small bubbles and even bubbling thru the disc. Only issue is that it seems like the suction cup is on the wrong side. Maybe its just where and how I put it in.
