Clear PVC/Pipe

I'm looking to make a DIY Co2 reactor and I would like to use clear PVC so I can see the bubbles diffusing and make sure it's working. My question is...

Where can I find 3/4" PVC around 12" long?

My problem is everywhere I look I have to buy it in 8ft increments or more, do you guys know anywhere where I can buy small pieces?

Did you mean 3" pvc? I'm pretty sure 3/4" won't do much diffusing.

did you check out McMaster-Carr? My roommate got a 4" piece of clear PVC from them, so I would imagine that they would sell smaller diameters.
