    Could someone suggest a decent external CO2 diffuser please?

    It needs to be suitable for a 720 litre tank, run 16mm pipe and have a bleed valve on it :D

    The one I currently have (although not in use) is an AquaMedic jobby. I'm pretty sure I read it only does 500 litre tanks and it has 12mm piping and I'd rather not reduce the flow of the filter down.

    Thankies ;)

    I made my own! There are loads of instructions on APC on various different ways of making them. Mine uses an old gravel cleaner filled with Bioballs to break up the flow. I inject the CO2 into the pipe before it enters the reactor as I find no bubble builds up in the top of the reactor like this.

    Thanks eds ;)

    I'm a bit pants with DIY as I'm sure I'll find out when I re-do the tank. I was looking at those Aquamass jobs that someone had posted a link to in another thread. Being in German doesn't help matters though!

    lol
