A friend of mines told me that placing a spray bar above the water will result in loss of CO2
levels. However, my setup only allows me to place the spray bar above the water line, so I rotated the water outflow so that it hits the tank wall before entering the water. The results seems fine but now, I am worried about the lack of oxygen.
Do you think the spray bar, in its new position, is creating enough oxygen for my tank?
