Re: [APD] CO2 reactor Questions - Clarification

Yes you can. In that situation you are putting the reactor
on the intake line of the filter if I read you correctly.
If there's any gas collection (there's usually some) it
will be at the top of the reactor instead of being in the
canister and burped out into the aquarium as bubbles. That
shoul dmean that you get more complete absorbtion and avoid
the chance of a filter lock up that some folks seem to get
when feeding into a canister without using a reactor.

Hope that answer is clearer too,
