    There is external CO2 reactor not diffuser. You can try to use tall plant or drift wood to hide your inlet and outlet.

    Ahkarboy,

    Which side of your tank is against the wall? Or is your tank sitting in the middle of the room?

    Why use punctuation? See what a difference it makes:

    I'm sorry, ahkarboy, we don't understand your reply. Can you please elaborate? For convenience, use the following terminology

    Code:
               back
         +--------------+
         |              |
    left |    tank      | right
         |              |
         +--------------+
              front

    Just wanting to be clear what you mean by:

    Middle what? Middle of the room? Middle of the length? Middle of the width?

    Middle of the width is not shown? Or your tank is in the middle of the room and the sides are covered by paper?

    We are trying to help... if you do not type a proper sentence to let us understand your problem, or answer our questions in context, then we don't know how to help.

    ahkarboy,

    Sealed as in cover with paper or something like that?

    As suggested by Simon, you can place the inlets and outlets in the middle of one end (i.e middle of one of the width). Use tall plants or drift to cover them as suggested by confusekid.

    If you can view the tank from both sides, it's not easy to hide stuff.

    Alternatively, use the above method to hide the outlet, but attach a strip of paper to cover the top 1 to 2 inches of the tank and make sure the water level is higher then the bottom edge of the paper. Hide the inlet behind that strip of paper. It depends on your current setup, whether the strip of paper will look nice. Instead of paper, you can make/convert a hood to cover the waterline.

    Or... the most trouble some one... drill holes into the bottom of your tank and poke the inlets and outlets through the bottom. No overhead pipes or pipes hanging over the sides.

    I've seen people tie moss to the plumbing to camoflage them.
