 Hi  Friends,
 
 Created  a  diffuser  using  the  ceramic  ring  that  we  use  in  the  canister  filter.  Used  new  ceramic  ring.   Smile   Smile  
 
 The  bubbles  are  very  fine  and  am  very  happy  to  see  the  bubble  coming  out  of  the  ceramic  ring.  Plan  to  use  for  a  nano  tank  (1sq  foot  cube)
 
 Can  use  this  in  bigger  tank.  Connect  two  to  three  ceramic  rings  to  make  a  big  diffuser   Thumb Up

 @  ruchit,
 
 Thanks...
 
 @  Govind,
 
 Thanks  for  the  comment.  This  diffuser  will  work  out  very  cheap  so  thought  that  it  would  be  great  benefit  for  hobbyist.
 
 @  nanomania,
 
 It  is  the  regular  ceramic  ring  with  openings  at  both  ends.  I  covered  one  end  with  a  cap  and  at  the  other  end,  I  connected  the  tube.
 
 
 
 Pic  taken  using  mobile  camera.  So  not  clear.

 Hi  Vidhyasagar,
 
 I  had  used  a  syringe  cap  to  over  one  end  of  the  ceramic  ring.  Used  "Araldite"  to  glue  the  ends.  Keep  aside  atleast  24hrs  before  connecting  the  ceramic  ring  to  the  CO2.
 
 Curing  time  for  Araldite  is  more  compared  to  other  adhesives.  I  am  not  sure  if  people  might  say  if  Araldite  is  not  good  for  fishes!!!!

 @  Prashanta,
 
 I  doubt  if  silicon  will  hold  the  CO2  pressure!!!
 
 @  Hamza,
 
 Thanks..  
 
 I  had  used  the  1ml  insulin  syringe  cap  to  cover  one  end  of  the  ceramic  ring.
 
 
 
 Cut  the  top  of  the  cap  to  cover  the  end  of  the  ring.  The  diameter  of  the  cap  fits  exactly  to  the  ring.!!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 To  cover  the  other  end,  use  the  normal  pipe  connector  that  we  use  in  the  air  pump
 
 
 
 
 
 Note:  Photos  are  taken  using  mobile  camera  and  hence  not  clear
 
 @  Maaz,
 
 Thanks.  Its  the  normal  ceramic  ring  that  we  use  as  a  canister  medium.  You  get  it  in  most  of  the  LFS.
 
 @  Asish,
 
 Thanks..  Yes  it  is  and  the  bubbles  are  very  fine...

 Thanks  for  the  explanation  mate,  I  am  going  to  make  one.  It  looks  nice  and  compact,  a  lot  better  than  my  previous  DIY  diffuser.
 
 You  dint  tell  what  adhesive  you've  used  to  paste  the  parts  together.
