I present you these easy-made overyielding active, passive reactors
and bubble counter.
Neat stuff. I had at one point come up with a PVC column which I put
inline with my power filter, but it ended up clogging up and being
somewhat more trouble than it was worth. Now I just use a power head
(fluval 301 with filter intake) and feed the tube into the filter column
without media in it. The power filter breaks up the C02 and sends the
small bubbles to the depths of the tank. Effectively it's a counter and
diffuser in one. My dKH is 4.2 and PH 6.7 = 25ppm C02. The bubble rate
is just 0.33bb/sec so it's not doing too bad of a job.
However, I think on the long term a passive reactor with a higher bubble
rate would be cheaper to operate.
