I've got some bad news for you: Probably about 90% of what you inject is lost to the surface. You don't need ripples to lose CO2, that's for sure, but the idea is to avoid accelerating the loss by breaking the surface. If there is any splashing, foaming, gurgling or burbling then you know you've gone too far.RudeDogg1 said:How much surface movement can you have befor you start losing your co2? mines rippling but I cant hear a thing so i assume its not actualy breaking the surface

I just have this problem now with lots of tiny bubbles from the ADA diffuser on the surface.. and only way to get rid of them is to have more movement from the filter outlet.

One also needs to manage the flow from the pump in a way that maximizes the distribution of the pumps energy over the widest possible area.
