I see it. so you went with a bell diffusor....why not a forced reactor or a ladder diffusor? Got something to secure that CO2 bottle (I am assuming a pop bottle?)?

10 million cat pictures? i do not have a problem... i do not have a problem... i do not have a problem...

I used a gatoraid bottle actually and i left the bottom on and just buried it in the gravel, its sitting in the corner of my tank. Its working pretty good. Whats a latter diffuser or forced diffuser? I am a visual person so i would have to see a pic if i was going to make one. As you can tell im new at this, i just used stuff from around the house, i didn't even have to buy anything.

Sorry, I meant as the primary reactor...where the CO2 is made.

Um, rather than attempt to describe one, or draw a diagram....

yes, the primary CO2 reactor is a Mountain Dew bottle.
I think the ladder and forced diffuser looks to difficult to "build"
one day i will buy a CO2 system, but this way i can have it now and see how it really works. Im hoping to see an improvement in my plants.
