So in an effort to reduce co2 loss, I've repositioned my co2 diffuser (glass type) beneath my filter intake (eheim 2211)... Will this be ok? It seems like the tiny mist bubbles would dissolve in the filter right? I just don't want to end up with a big co2 pocket in my canister. I did this because it was hard to get the co2 bubbles circulating well around my tank before they floated to the surface. Is anyone else doing anything similar?

Thanks,
nick

You will have good results. I just have the co2 tubing plumbed directly into mu intake of a 2213. Works like a champ.

Thats an excellent find. I really have never seen one of thise exact examples but it's cheap enough to not be that big of a risk.

Orlando who runs Green Leaf Aquariums runs/sells these and speaks very highly of them.
