It seems to me that you would have to be running a -lot- of bubbles into a
canister filter to air-lock it with CO2. I have the 2028 filter and have
never had a problem. How much CO2 are you pushing through it? Bubbles in
water may make noise, but they can't damage anything, that's silly. If a
temporary filter stoppage causes fish deaths then the tank is overstocked to
begin with, IMO.
