I just set up this reactor so, at the moment, no baby shrimps have been trapped inside the filter yet. Most of the shrimp seem to shy away from it since they see the fast movement of the media.
I've seen some kaldnes reactors which use just airline tubing with no stone but they have multiple airlines entering the reactor. I think it will be noisier because the bubbles are much bigger. I think it's worth a try.
