hello

I have a planted 20g sa biotope(I cheated on the shrimp). anyways lately I've been looking into dyo co2 injetion to boost plant growth and I've found instructions for the coke botle thing but I havent found an effective way to disperse the c02 in my tank.can you tell me what you guys do for this.

p.s I want to try it on my planted 10g also , is it worth it?

I cut a bottom of a pop bottle glued a suction cup to it then drilled a small hole on the side of it and pushed the tubing through it and placed it in the tank

I made my own diffuser thats a little but different from others.
I got the idea from here.

here's a pic of what mine looks like.
I did it in ms paint, bad drawing but I hope u get the idea.

the filter has a hole in the pump head that draws air in from the generators.
pushes the air into the tube. the filter pad stops air from escaping. the holes on the bottom let water escape.
