hi all

i am thinking about getting or making an in-line reactor
but in the mean time, what about this idea...

i use a really tiny interpet internal filter with a glass nano diffuser in the media area,
so it diffuses small bubbles into the body that are then chopped up and sent out the outlet
of the tiny filter

if i was to block the outlet of this little filter
would the bubbles keep rising into the impellor
and potentially diffuse better

so the water would exit the same little slots
as it comes in

any thoughts?

I have the powerhead of an old internal filter sat above my diffuser, it chops the bubbles up and spreads them around the tank superbly

Just call me a Coch-y-Bondhu

If you have the bits and bob's give it a go :thumbup:. I place a diffuser by my aqua ball 2210, some bubble went into the filter but the majority missed - so yes If you can get inside the media compartment that should be better.
