You COULD do it that way but I think I've figured out a better method based on looking at various commercial CO2 injection systems. One you could just go buy the co2 diffuser that come with most of them and feed your airline to it. The option I currently use however is to sink a small container (shot glass in my case) and weigh it down with some rock or something along those lines. Run the airline under that and let the co2 bubble into the upside down glass. Just make sure its well anchored or itll float away when enough co2 builds up. This way the co2 is trapped within the water and has more time to diffuse. Excess will work its way out of the glass and bubble up normally. Works wonders for me.

matt, you need a better filter. An internal filter is alright for small, lowly stocked aquariums but yours is over stocked. You will be needing a better filter, a powerfilter would be best for that size tank, you might need double or even tripple filtration.

Changing water stresses your fish, plus it can cause a hefty water bill, i would still suggest a better filter since it is better for the fish, and you.

Im not gonna be able to get a picture up here anytime soon. Shouldn't really need one anyway...fill the shot glass with water...submerge it...turn it over place the airtube so it bubbles up into the shot glass...and weigh it down. piece of cake.
