Re: Best Method for Complete Co2 dissolution..

What I have done is drill a hole in the bottom of my Eheim intake strainer.
I inserted an airline connector into the hole and attached the CO2 tubing to
the outside end.  I then placed a cheap disposable airstone on the other end
of the connector inside the intake strainer.  It works great for creating
smaller bubbles that go into the filter.  I still get the occasional gurgle,
but it's significantly less frequent.
