any suggestions to make a DIY co2 diffuser?

currently i'm using a airstone to release a co2 from diy co2 system. the released bubbles go through dense cabonba leaves & breaks into very small bubbles by the time it reaches top of the tank. hence i'm concluding the co2 dissolves well in water (considering the size of the bubbles at the time when its released from the airstone, and the size when it passes throu the leaves and reaches the top). this is my home made diffuser.
can anyone suggest something better?

Did you redirect the air pipe of the coy generator to your filter?

No. i've used a air-stone to release the co2 in the tank.

When I ran my DIY co2 setup, I put the air tube right into the intake valve on my internal filter. It chopped the bubbles into little specs and shot them all over the tank.

Never had any luck with the air stone diffuser.

Finally I upgraded to a Hagen Co2 Diffuser.
