im sure it wouldn't have mattered either way.. if anything.. they will keep bouncing around the chamber to dissuade crap from accumulating on the sides.. hmmmmm

I have decided to build the cerger version. The additional cost is really just the 18 filter at home depot otherwise most connections are the same.

I got a fluval 406 to power it so we will see how it turns out this weekend.

Hopefully it helps my tank since j got a canister filter just for the purpose of the inline reactor. Well that and better water movement.

Yeah, cool. I am also building a Cerges for another tank. I am just waiting on Menards to ship the filter to me.

I too built a griggs style reactor. I just used schedule 40 pvc not clear. It was more of a test to see if it would work and I was sick and tired of my tank looking like 7up. I was using my powerhead as my diffuser. Now there are no co2 bubbles at all. I had similar results to dcutl002 and had to back down my bps.

I just got the standard white one from Home Depot. The 2-3 week ship time on Menards site scared me away a little.

Hardest part now is getting it in the cabinet and avoiding kinking the lines.

I assume extra tubing to make a circle will hurt flow a bit.

Was going to do a straight shot to the filter but then it won't leave me any slack to take the filter piping out which I figured could be an issue.

Maybe a little bit.. wouldn't think it to be too dramatic though.

That curl will have a minuscule effect on your flow at best. You're good.
