I'm partial to the Hagen "ladder" style diffuser/bubble counter that comes with the hagen CO2 setup - its usually about $10 - 15 for just the diffuser.
It makes it easy to "see" the bubbles slowly dissolve, and to see how fast they are coming out of the DIY bottle.
And I know a place near Mass Ave that sells them :mrgreen:
Or you can mail order them:

ooops sorry, I didn't mean Mass Ave in Cambridge - I was trying to be funny :roll:
Skipton's is near the corner of Mass Ave and South Hampton St, and many people assume its on Mass ave....
(I try to be even handed in my plugging of local stores, and not be complete and total Skipton's shill here on the forum 8) )
