I recently changed from my external DIY reactor to the venturi reactor.
I followed exactly the diagram in the gallery.
my tank size is 36x18x18"
I placed the reactor near the center rear bottom of the tank...with a spraybar spraying towards the backwall of the tank..
the bubbles do not go around the tank as it is suppose to...the mist only makes it half way to the front and then it goes to the surface.
i've tried spraying it towards the front of the reactor, and the opposite happens, most of the mist escapes through the back of the spraybar.
the mist also concentrates near the center and rarely makes it to the left side nor right side of the tank
i am feeding more CO2 in the venturi than my DIY reactor, and I am experiencing thread algae all over and my pellia are all dead.
What am I doing wrong? Hopefully I don't need to convert to the diffuser method since I thought the venturi is just as good.
Thanks for your help.
