Default 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 use wooden diffusers for mine, works effectively. Dont know what type of wood though, if that matters.

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