Yep they work a charm. Here's mine (before I added the co2 barb)

I really want to use a reactor, cause I don't like all the micro bubbles ,what others call sprite looking.

Yea that's the reason I changed from an inline diffuser. The reactor works great. No bubbles at all. I glued a pipe inside the house filter about 3/4 of the way down to the bottom and I've got an old fine filter sponge half way down over the hose to hold any micro bubbles in.

Nothing has made it through at all

Looks like it would work, I'd just add a T peice at the inlet and put a co2 barb on it
