glass diffusers are nice looking, but clog up and need soaking and cleaning with a diluted bleach solution. even after that, not everyone has had good results after their first cleaning.

i don't know what the reviews on the red sea electric diffusers are, so i can't comment.

if you are opting for a diffuser instead of an inline reactor, i would suggest having the diffuser underneath your filter's intake. this would ensure the co2 is completely dissolved into the tank water. this would also prevent premature degassing.

if you don't want to have it underneath your filter intake, then position the diffuser underneath your filter spraybar, and fairly close to the bottom. or add a powerhead. this is to ensure the tiny bubbles stay as long as possible in the water before reaching the top.

hope this helps.
