    Eheim 2262 Filter I know it will handle up to 500g but what is the lowest possible tank that can handle this filter? Would a 40g B be way to small? just asking.

    Here’s a video of it on a 125g. I can’t see it working on a 40gallon, but I’m just guessing from the video.



    Now if I had one to experiment with I would set up some inline static mixers in series to dissolve CO2. I wonder if that would work....it would really reduce the output.

    I use 1 Clear Big Blue { Dimensions: 23-3/8" x 7-1/4" (594 mm x 184 mm) } Whole House filter with BIO balls and 1in intake/out put , with the Eheim 2262 I get 100% dissolve co2 . Have a pvc in the center go all the way down the bottom then the water will run up thru the bio balls and out .
    I have the co2 inter thru intake before it inters the reactor guess I can add a shut off ball valve and slow down the out put just a bit.
