    I have been doing some research on CO2 diffusers for CO2 misting. There is the well known Aqua Design Amano pollen glass and pollen glass beetle models. Then there seem to be a variety of other what seem to be knock offs. Has anybody had experience using the ADA and knock offs? Is it worth the 3x-5x price increase to get the ADA's? Anybody know the difference between the ADA's versus the others? Better quality? Finer misting?

    The ADA Glassware is 1st. rate !

    I know Tom and I both use the Rhinox diffusers and I personally see no difference in performance. Tom has said as much in previous posts. The ADA's Prettier ! :p HTH. Prof M

    P.S. I may have a few extras laying about ? What size are you looking for ?

    Well, I have a brand new pollen glass 30 for sale, 80$ shipped, and you can get the Rhionox and test and see.
    The Pollen glass via retailers will be about 100-110 w/shipping.

    What is the difference betwen the pollen glass and the pollen glass beetle? Physically, the pollen glass beetle appears to be a corner mount with 2 suctions cups. Is that the only difference?

    I had ! a slightly used Rhinox 5000 for $25.00 plus shipping. It saw less than 1 week of use before I switched the system to a venturi. Don't mean to horn in on Tom's action, but the wife gets curious when I have extra hardware laying around ! :eek: Thanks, Prof M

    EDITED: SOLD
