Purchasing CO2 tank/reg - need diffuser for 55 Gal

Any recommendations on what would properly disperse CO2 in a 55 without overdosing or PH-pounding the fish?

Nothing fancy. Just a good diffuser for a 55.

Links to parts would most certainly be welcomed!

Thank you in advance.

Go to Greenleafaquariums.com or google greenleaf. They have very nice glass diffusers starting as low as 19.95.

I'm pretty sure "limewood" is the one used for diffusing.
