Default CO2 Diffusion

Is it ok to just put the CO2 tube into the inlet of my canster filter? I
bought some crazy thing called the 'Aqua Medic Membrane Reactor". It worked
for a while (just discharging large [email protected] bubbles into the water), now the
damn hose keeps popping off the tube, I'd rather go the most simple route.
Thanks for any info,


Jim C.

Yes. I have three planted aquariums where the CO2 tubes bubble directly
into all canister filter intakes. The CO2 is completely dissolved. The
only problem that I encountered once was when one of the filters had its
flow reduced because of lack of cleaning. The CO2 took longer to
dissolve and finally caused an air block. This hasn't happened again though.

Thanks very much. I've heard of that minor problem too. But I'll do as you
do. Thanks again for the help.

If there was an adapter that fits in between the hose, say the outflow hose
then that would avoid any chances of an air block occurring? You may not get
as good as diffusion but you wouldn't ever have to worry about your pump
....all it would have to be is a plastic tube and a fitting for the CO2
hose...
does anyone know if such a device exists
