Hello; I have a question about circulation.

I have noticed that I have a lack of water circulation in the corner of my 55 gallon freshwater tank. The "dead spot" is right next to my CO2 diffuser.

So my question is can I put a circulation pump like a Aqueon 700 under the diffuser?

I know you shouldn't have any type of water disturbance around the diffuser.

I have my filter ( Marineland Emperor 350) on the opposite side of the tank so I got plenty of water movement there.

Looking for ideas.

Thanks;

Shouldn't be a prob, and it might even chop up the bubbles a little more.

So should I put the pump above the diffuser or below it?

My diffuser is at the bottom of my tank...In most cases thats where they are located. So in my situation I would put the pump / Cirrulation WELL above the diffuser (at the top of the tank)
