Where I've always stood - if set up correctly, they don't have a serious
impact.  I'm sure that you could optimize other filtration setups to be more
CO2 miserly but it doesn't matter much to me.  Canisters are a pain to clean
compared to trickle, the sump is a nice place to put equipment and they are
nitrate generators (which is good these days, right?). 

See my website for the CO2 Loss Experiment.
