If the DIY co2 generates enough pressure the reactor will work.
Since you are already able to get glass diffuser to work the reactor should also.
That is a good reactor and price(looks to be a generic sera{I have 2}).
You will enjoy not having your tank look like seven up!

Re: ideas for external atomizer diffuser

I definitely get pressure and the co2 kit came with a knob that allows either more or less pressure to be pumped in by adjusting it. It can definitely crank it out so you think this atomizer will work then with my setup? Was just a little hesitant about needing pressurized co2 for it I might have to give this a shot thanks.

Re: ideas for external atomizer diffuser

Make sure to have a check valve inbetween the reactor and your DIY hardware.
Keep the DIY bottles above the reactor IMO.
The impellars in the reactor don't have to spin to work so if the co2 gets there(NO pressure from reactor) and the water flows through it will work.
I do have pressurized but also no there is no back pressure with these units.
Good luck and hope this helps.
