Anyone have ideas on how to disperse CO2 in my 10 gallon? I plan on growing demanding plants like HC and Glosso.

Also I'm trying to keep the tank as sleek and low profile as possible.

The reactor would be in the cabinet... but in the water a power head system would not be preferred (besides the current) because it would be hard to hide.

I have a HOB filter so I can't run it through the canister...

And I'm not sure if a ceramic stone would do the job well enough....

Any input or other ideas? Please and thanks!

How about something like this:

I've used something similar before & it worked quite well. Things I did differently were to have a pin sized breather hole in the top of the gravel vac so that co2 could not build up & burp it's way out. I put 6 bio-balls in the gravel vac to help break up the bubbles. I also jammed a piece of coarse filter sponge into the bottom of the gravel vac so that the bubbles were broken down even more & so the bio-balls could not escape. I also drilled a hole about halfway down the gravel vac for the co2 line to enter the chamber.
