Plugging co2 in a canister filter?

Hi, I am in the process of making a DIY co2 system, and in the instructions it says that I should "run the air line tubing from the cap to the intake of a powerhead or canister filter". I have a Fluval 204 and I have no idea how to hook the tubing to my intake. Where does it need to go? Can anyone help with that?

I'm not an expert but I believe you run the CO2 tube down the side the the Fluval intake (the tube that's lowest in the tank) and let the CO2 bulbs get sucked into the intake of the canister. In not sure what people use to secure the CO2 tube. Rubber bands?

Thank you, that's what I thought I had to do, but I didn't want to do anything stupid! I'll try that.

Make sure you put the output of the CO2 well below the intake of the canister. If it is too close you risk having a suction that could drain the CO2 bottles and ruin your tank.
