Re: [APD] Have you actually tired the method ?

I am a bit confused by all the argument on this topic. I am hoping for a 
simple explanation please.

In my tank, I bubble CO2 into a reactor plumbed inline from the output 
of my canister filter.
The gas disolves in the water, because they bubble up, while the 
direction of water flow is down..

Are you saying that a "mix of gas", as opposed to a "solution of gas" 
provides a better result?
