Re:CO23 diffuser warning

David, sorry you lost your fish.
Don't necessarily rule out use of Eheim diffuser
IMO, they do a good job of diffusing, particularly on large tanks.  Remove
the check valve that comes with it, install a regular check valve and a good
quality needle valve. That will let you  easily adjust and control the rate
and should have  no problems with excessive flow. I have been using Eheim
diffusers with this method for months on some 20+ tanks with no failures or
re glass disk coming out. If unit is correctly put together is no chance of
that unless perhaps one smashed the glass disk.
