I gotcha. I don't think you can change the size of the bubbles. The stone isn't being restricted at all is it?

It doesn't have a stone on it just the pipe coming into the bit so might try getting a stone and see How that works out with it. Just wondered If because it has a T peice that its blowing the way it does. Cheers for your help

If your air pump is on the floor, make sure you're using a check valve. Water can back up through the airline and cause a mess.

OP has a check valve. He cleared that up on the first page.
