I've got those diffusers, thy're fine for diffusion but I would recommend keeping the koralia for better distribution of CO2.

Hey welshwonder,
On a tank that size I would seriously consider using external reactor(s) in lieu of the wimpy internal ones shown in your link. There is a DIY thread written by Ed Seeley or you can opt for the expensive store bough ones, like the one shown=> Cal Aqua Inline Diffuser

The externals work well when their outputs are fed into the spraybar, but only if the hydraulic energy is robust. For a 240L tank you should consider a filter rating of at least 2400LPH if you will not otherwise supplement with the powerheads. So this means either the Tetratec 2400 or something like an FX5 or Eheim 2080. High tech planted tanks of this size are in the "No-Bozos" category so you have to really think seriously about the equipment or the risk of endless algae problems is magnified.

Cheers,
