Yeah the flow rate is what is causing this. I run reactors that are 23", 26", and 29" on my Eheim 2215's and 2213's and never have any bubbles make it out. The co2 is completely diffused.

I would suggest that. Liquid co2 won't be too bad for just the 10 gallon. especially if you use metricide 14 instead of excel.

The fluctuation in dosing and that many water changes a week is causing inconsistency which causes algae. Pressurized co2 will increase plant growth, which in turn increases the demand for nutrients.
