    I don’t think people like them because they produce too many bubbles, and ruin the view.

    This guy is using air, at a high ml/min, but I’m sure you’ll run into a similar experience. I used a straight inline diffuser for a time, and that drove me nuts after a while, too many bubbles. Tom is using a reactor on a 17ft tank seen here:

    The ozone contact cone is essentially a reactor, but with some efficiency improvements, and a very hefty price tag.

    I don’t know anyone using a mazzei injector currently on the forums.

    Keep in mind those cones are designed to operate under pressure. I wonder if anyone has tried adapting a surplus soda fountain. ;)
