Waterflow and co2 placement


I have a question about the waterflow and co2.

Last Saturday i changed the setup of my 180liters jewel aquarium to a more naturale environment for my angelfish. I bought a co2 starterskit to boost my plants. I started this hobby about 7-8 months ago and still learning the basics and i am still puzzeling around what the best placement is for the outlet and what kind of outlet i should use, to distribute the co2 efficiently trough my tank.

Currently i am using a spraybar on the side of my tank (see picture) and acros the tank i setted up the co2 diffuser.

What would any of you use as outlet and where would you place the diffuser? I saw pictures of spraybars on the whole back wall but is that efficient? I added a picture of my tank, the circle on the left is where the spraybar is and the right circle is the co2 placement.

Thank you in advance.

I'd put the diffuser under the spray bar and let the current catch the bubbles. You could also get a small pump, such as a Koralia, to move the bubbles.
