There is little doubt in my mind that injecting CO2 into a canister filter is 
efficient.  My concern is the safety, after having my Eheim canister lock up 
3 separate times while injecting CO2.  When I have commented on this before, 
many have said they have not had this experience and injected CO2 this way 
for years.  The only thing I know for sure is that 2 of the times my filter 
locked up I had about $200-$400 worth of fish in the aquarium that were belly 
up!  I would advise anyone to get a reactor setup like Tom Barr's system, I 
believe that Robert has a system available at Aquabotanic as well.  JMO,
