 I have been experimenting with different devices to use for diffusing
 bottled CO2 in my 55 gallon aquarium to try and find something that does not
 have to be cleaned every week. So far the Coralife wooden diffuser (I
 believe it is lime wood) wins hands down! It has been putting out extremely
 fine bubbles for 4 weeks now with no apparent change in bubble size. >>

Great idea! For some reason, I assumed that only CO2 reactors/diffusers can
 be used for CO2, and that "airstones" and the like can only be used for air 
pumps. I am currently using the Eheim CO2 diffuser and (like you said) after 
several weeks the air bubble size is in fact increasing significantly.  Will 
order the wooden air diffusers (in the Pet Warehouse catalog they carry the 
brand "Lee's") soon and try them out.  Linc Duffy, Pleasant Valley, NY
