Inline diffuser that can fit fx6 tubing??

The tubing to my FX6 filter is too big for a 16mm/22mm inline C02 diffuser! And that's the largest I can find.. any suggestions? PLEASE HELP

Hey mate, your better off making a reactor! I'd say you have a large tank of your running a fx6 so the best way to get a good co2 spread is a spray bar and a reactor.

You have 2 choices with the reactor, either a "Griggs DIY reactor" or a "Cerges reactor" I personally feel the cerges is better.

Here's the links for how to make them:
Griggs - http://rotalabutterfly.com/rex-grigg/diy-reactor.htm

Cerges - https://glassboxgardeners.com/thread...2-reactor.346/


Just get the size hose barbs you require.

Both are very easy to make and all parts should be available at your local hardware store. Not very expensive to build either.

I built an inline reactor that I plumbed to my FX5. It's been running perfectly with pressurized CO2 for over a year now.

Below is the thread:

Well I already bought a 16/22mm inline diffuser but I need to figure out how to attach it to the larger hosing on the fx6 without chance of leaks
