hmm.... that not a bad idea... I am going to make one with a second bottle (probably 20 OZ) that will be between the check valve and the 2 liter bottle. Ill take some pics tonight when I get home... ill take picks of doing it as well.

I alos used a chopstick as you can see form the pic as my difuser... WOW it wors great (at leas tI think lol) the bubbles are VERY small.

I just need to know if putting it in the HOB filter will be enough to dispell the gas

try it, chopsticks are free from the chinese food place, I use chopsticks for my sand vacuum so I dont suck up the sand, got about 100 of em in a box.

1/2" is short I think maybe 1" would be better? air stone size.

Im in quarantine myself for 24 hours so I gotta feeling I will have this done at some point today, should only take 5 minutes to assemble once the parts/pieces are laid out.

I got a ton of 1/2" copper around here but I dont think that would be a good idea to use in the tank. I mean would make for a great themed tank but I dont think I am going to be making tiny stills and such for the moonshine theme.

I am finding many tricks for eco friendly non emission cars will work in fish tanks as far as air delivery and plumbing goes.

I saw, I was stating in relation to size, I do alot of comparing.

I am still shopping for plants right now, printing off pics and taping them to the glass to see how it would look roughly, OoOo might take the background off the back and tape them that way to give light and in water views. I have current in the tank so they will sway nicely.

All this MacGyver-ism is making me think of how to turn my HOB into a 5g canister filter.

I know it can be done its just going to be tricky and very fabricated.

Im full of ideas, however most of then well practically none of them ever make it to paper. I like doing not jotting notes, you know.

I am still trying to get to the CO2 contraption but I got stuck making cookies for my belly and my kids.
