    I used for almost two years a Pro Clear Aquatic System model 75 Wet/Dry filter in a 40gal long tank with DIY and later pressurized CO2.

    Here's a the link to them
    http://www.pro-clear.com/wetdry.html

    I had no problems other than algae growing in the intake overflow (box placed inside the tank). What I liked about this particular model was the "quasi enclosed" compartment where the pre-filter tray is placed (where the overflow hose goes).

    I know I got regular readings of 24-26ppm of CO2 when running it. I redo that tank and dismantled the Wet/Dry for no other reason than the ugly algae growing in the overflow box.

    I don't know if this is important or not (as far as degassing) but my unit is an older version that has the incoming water hose attached to a lateral wall (not the top wall) of the Wet/Dry.

    Pretty much any of the Wet/Dry units will work. You may need some tape to seal up the biotower to cut down on CO2 outgassing. Some have reasonably decent covers over the whole unit which may suffice. In any event, tape is cheap enough to wrap it with.
