    I've been using an air stone as a diffuser for about a month or so. I'm not sure if this crazy co2 spike is from adding mountain dew to my recipe or not. :p Last night I took a clump of java moss and attached it to the airline above the air stone and kind of crammed it in the back corner of the tank. It collects co2 bubbles like crazy and holds them under water vastly increasing contact time with the water.

    I've actually had to disconnect my diy system today for the first time as a safety precaution.

    Hopefully this can help anyone needing to increase the co2 levels they get out of there diy system.

    Horrible pic but you can still see some bubbles even though I disconnected the co2 a while ago. uploadfromtaptalk1357008213869.jpg

    Looks good, smart idea, it's like a natural bell diffuser.

    I put cotton in the airline then a round air stone and they were pretty small. I moved up to a actual diffuser and it worked with DIY . Pretty great stuff.
