Other equipment:
CO2 PLANT

For a good plant growth, I use a
CO2 system with night shut off via a solenoid valve of US hunting.

The CO2 is supplied via a
Tee directly into the external filter here, the CO2 bubbles almost completely dissolved, the CO2-resolution comes with the filtered water into the basin.

I've tried several variations of pinball, diffuser, and Nuclear.

Satisfied I was so far only with the direct input in the external filter.
(For this method, you should have no filter wool or sponges in the filter.)
