Default Over working a cansiter.

So I'm getting close to setting up my 58 gallon tank.
I have a eheim 2217 filter and an inline heater.
I want to add c02. DIY isn't really efficient enough for this and I want to keep things out of the tank as much as possible.
So would an Inline diffusor be to much to put on the cansiter along with the heater?

the inline diffusor will work best with a flow of 350 gph or so. But I dont see any issues of overworking the eheim. It will handle it fine. The bigger issue will be the length of the tubing used for it, as the inline items shouldnt create a pressure issue.

well, since both items are fairly passive, meaning they shouldnt slow the flow down by themselves. The only issue that will do it is the length of the tubing. Try to make it as short as possible.
