I've never tried it myself, but I think some just run the tubing along the outside of the intake tube and position the end near the intake screen so it sucks the bubbles in. I think you can secure it with a tie wrap or something similar.

How effective is this? Would it work on a HOB filter?
Simpte you don't need any filter for it.Just a small pump like a RIO pump is what i am using.It just connects to the top of the reactor in the tank submerged.The RIO i am using is the 90 just enough pressure to circulate the bubbles in the reactor.
NOTE//just used with pressurized co2

Running the co2 into the intake of an hob works fine. I have that system in my two 10 gals, running into the intake of an ac mini. I keep my levels between 20-30 with pressurized.
