That's how I do CO2 in mine (see pics). It's the same 12DX. 1/2" barb from HD, take the green pump hose with you since they have several 1/2" barbs in different sections and only one will fit and glue (black ABS one, IIRC it's in sprinkler system section). Transparent acryllic thingie from pet store. Drill a hole and assemble two parts using Superglue or PVC glue. The CO2 line goes in the same hole as electrical cord of the pump. You will need to throw away black rubber thingie which plugs this hole.
