Put my diffuser under the output of my filter and am getting a good mix and at nightine when the bubblestone comes on it is in the path of the diffuser so tne o2 can cary out the co2 at night.
Worked out PURFECTLY

Because your using diy you may not even need to run air Just make sure you have a good amount of surface agitation and thats usually enough. You can run air but it all depends on how effective your diy is.
What size is the tank?
