    Hey all I'm new here! :)
    I have a 2KG FE setup in my Juwel 96, but I'm looking for a decent diffuser, but one that doesn't cost the earth..(cheapo :D )
    I've seen a few on ebay, like these:
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... :IT&ih=011
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Co2-Diffuser-9000 ... dZViewItem

    Does anybody have any experience with these, and if so how efficient are they?
    Also, I've read about rigging it so that the CO2 enters the pump/filter in some way, how exactly does that work? Is it easy?

    Cheers,
    Paul.

    I've got one of the Spiro type diffusers in my Rio 180 and it worked well as long as the flow is high to spread the bubbles all around the tank. I've added a Hydor Koralia to up the flow but many use external filters to up the filtration along with the flow.

    However when cleaning it I put a Rhinox 5000 in to replace it and that did an even better job so I've left that in at the moment! I'd probably recommend you bought one of those to be honest.

    Yeah, I think I'll give the Rhinox 2000 a go, cheers :)
