 Hi,
 
 I  have  a  70  gallon  tank.  I'm  using  a  ceramic  diffuser.  the  CO2  pipe  keeps  coming  off  the  ceramic  diffuser.  Any  tricks  to  secure  this?  I've  tried  with  the  cable  tie  -  no  luck.  need  help.

 I  use  the  twist  tie,  this  usually  works.  The  problem  might  be  excessive  pressure-  20-30  PSI  is  sufficient  for  a  ceramic  diffuser.  If  the  pressure  is  higher  you  can  reduce  it.  Secondly  if  the  pores  are  blocked  the  pressure  builds  up  and  can  cause  this.  soak  the  diffuser  in  chlorine  bleach  for  a  day.  then  wash  and  use  it.  This  will  clear  the  pores.

 Thanks  a  lot  for  the  reply.  what's  the  twist  tie  method?  Will  do  the  cleaning..  does  cleaning  with  hydrogen  peroxide  work?

 https://goo.gl/images/XGj9kF  -  I  just  use  it  to  secure  the  pipe  to  the  glass  diffuser.  be  careful  i  have  broken  too  many  diffusers  being  careless  the  stem  breaks  easily.
 
 Chlorine  works  better  that  peroxide  IMO.

 Thanks,  I  tried  with  a  cable  tie,  that  didn't  work.  So  the  twist  think  is  unlikely  to  work.
 
 I  don't  have  Seachem  prime  with  me  to  use  as  an  after  for  the  chlorine.  Will  try  with  peroxide.
 
 Thanks  a  lot  for  your  response  mate.

 I  had  similar  problem.  
 Try  to  cut  the  silicone  tube  by  1  inch  and  connect  to  the  diffusor.  If  it  doesn't  fix  its  most  probably  blocked  diffusor.  
 I  clean  my  co2  diffusor  with  clorox  bleach.  U  need  to  also  look  at  the  internal  surface  of  the  diffusor.  If  it's  blocked  few  drops  of  bleach  will  help  to  clean  the  internal  surface.  But  make  sure  it  is  washed  properly  before  u  put  it  back  in  the  tank.

 Hello,
 
 For  me  cyanoacrylate  glue  (fevikwik)  works  fine.  However  for  removing  the  pipe  you'll  have  to  apply  a  bit  of  force,  so  be  careful  if  using  a  glass  diffuser...
 
 Regards,

 Cutting  the  pipe  and  fixing  hasn't  worked.  So  I'm  guessing  it's  a  bloaked  diffusor.  Will  try  doing  that.  Thanks  a  lot  for  the  revert.

 So  I  dipped  the  diffuser  in  CLorox  for  about  45  minutes.  Kept  it  in  AntiChlorine  solution  overnight  and  then  just  to  be  sure  run  hot  water  on  it..  now  the  problem  seems  to  have  gotten  stopped..  thanks  a  lot  for  your  suggestions   Clapping   Cheering

 Unfortunately  this  issue  hasn't  been  resolved  yet.  I  was  out  the  other  day,  the  Co2  came  off,  I  lost  10  neons,  3  cardinals,  3  harlequins,  1  hillstream  loach  ..I'm  having  concerns  about  the  Co2  setup..  This  is  the  image  of  my  Co2  setup...There  are  2  regulators,  I  can  see  pressure  build  up  in  Regulator  1  but  the  Regulator  2  never  works..  When  asked,  my  LFS  says  that  it  won't  work  because  there  isn't  enough  pressure..  I  have  never  setup  Co2  before  so  I've  to  go  with  what  he  says..
 
 Couple  of  things:
 
 1.  I'm  not  sure  why  the  fishes  gased  out  cos  even  if  the  pipe  came  off  the  diffusor,  the  flow  of  CO2  had  to  be  constant  -  the  same  with/without  diffusor.  So  how  did  the  pipe  coming  off  render  excess  Co2  in  the  tank?  I'm  confirming  that  there  was  excess  Co2  because  the  drop  checker  had  turned  yellow..  Could  this  be  a  problem  with  the  regulator  itself  that  it's  not  able  to  regulate  Co2  which  is  why  the  Pipe  keeps  coming  off  as  well  despite  cleaning  the  ceramic  disk?
 
 If  there  are  any  planted  tank  experts  in  Bangalore  (electronic  city),  would  really  really  appreciate  a  personal  inspection  at  your  convenience..  Please  help  Sad
