Default how to make eheim 2028 into co2 reactor?

im getting a eheim 2028 and was wondering how do most you guys rig this thing up to turn it into a reactor itself?

where do you hook the line going from the regulator into the filter?

p.s. i have injected co2 by a cylinder.

I just feed the CO2 line directly into the intake strainer but you could drill a hole into the tubing out of the tank and feed it into there, just watch for leaks.

Hope that helps

Use a pair of wire cutters to cut away a portion of one of the strainer fins near the top of the strainer. Then snake the CO2 line down the strainer pipe and into the strainer. You can also count bubbles there if you can see the strainer closely.
