diy co2 tubing placement..

I was thinking about buying a diffuser or something, but until then should I be putting my tubing into the intake of my filter? I think I read this somewhere so I am giving it a try. First attempt. Also, who takes their co2 out when the lights go out?

I do the same thing as you, until I get a diffuser. Also, I don't bother taking the co2 out, there is no point. Atleast if you leave it in during the night, some of it is being used.

My opinion is that a diffuser will help you get more of the CO2 dissolved in the water, but many have had success with the method you're talking about.

Really? I thought I had read of people having trouble with their co2 ppm going crazy, is that maybe something to do with a stronger co2 output with like a pressurized system? Thanks for the heads up guys
