The brands of diffusors are not really a problem, it is more of the maintainence of the diffusor. ADA diffusors also suffer problems of algae (like everything in our tanks does) so proper cleaning of it is important.

Just get a normal ceramic diffusor that suits your budget and it should be fine. The bigger your tank, the bigger the disc's circumference should be. Those with coils is just for looks, it is not actual help, so no point getting the long ones with endless curling coils.

Bubble counters are also pretty much the same across the brands, save for the exceptional few like ADA. Like what i advise, get one that suits your budget.

NA and Ecoculture can offer a pretty good selection and advise. Even places like C328 stocks quite an arsenal of equipment. Check around.

Check C328 and NA. They have plenty diffusers. Choose according to your budget. They will have similar capacity for the beginner.

Also, do not use diffuser with DYI Yeast Co2. Just my advice.

True. DIY co2 cannot squeeze tru ceramic diffuser.

If using a ceramic diffuser, no need to buy bubble counter...

Try to get those that are replicas or copies of ADA.

Erm, if you do have the ceamic diffusors with the long coils, you might not want to have the bubble counter since you can pretty much see the coils to measure the bps, but then the bubble counter do have another purpose.

Sometimes when your check valve leaks, the bubble counter is one of the best line of defense. The bubble counter can catch some of the leaks, provided your bubbles counter is not filled to the brim. I've had on 2 occasions been saved by the counter when my check valve failed on me.

How about those external CO2 diffusers? Would it flare better, say for a 6x2x2 ft tank?
