Re: Injecting co2 into a canister filter
"I've heard that if you inject co2 into a canister filter that you will lose
great deal of it by doing it this way, if so why then are so many people
doing it to start with?"
You will hear this only from people that have a vested monetary interest in
selling you unnecessary CO2 diffusers and reactors. If you have a canister
filter on a tank, then placing the CO2 line inside the intake strainer is a
perfect way to inject CO2. You will not lose a great deal of it by doing it
this way. Over a million years or so, you might see a few pounds worth of
difference between using your canister filter and a reactor, but at that
point, who cares? You're dead, and so are your plants. You are going to lose
more CO2 to other factors anyway, so don't wory about it.
