    I think that you're better off with a reactor that has a second chamber as a extra chamber will reduce the amound of Co2 that ends up in your water/tank. Other things to look at are a good quality needle valve and bubble counter as well as an easy way to add new media. I'd also suggest a solenoid that will shut off the supply of Co2 should the power go out, otherwise you'll end up with a Ph problem when the power comes back on.

    Here's a pic of the one I built. I'm sure that there are better designs but this one seems to work well.
