    What I did, step by step:

    • emptied an old internal filter of all the foam media
      made a hole in the basket for an airline (i just pushed the plastic bars through)
      put a glass / ceramic diffuser in the basket and connected up to my co2 supply
      put bio media (any type will do) on top of the diffuser and filled the basket back up
      attached the basket back to the powerhead
      i did this on a Fluval 1 internal filter i had lying around. Cheap, simple and easy to do.

    result = great co2 distribution around the tank

    This is a really nice idea, thanks for sharing.
    If I can't get my barr external style reactor parts cheap I may cannabilise the external boyu filter I got from Steve...
