I run a huge 3" diameter, 25" tall reactor for my fx5. I still get decent amount of micros bubbles running about 3bps on my JBL counter. It still gets my drop checker yellowish in my 75 gallon tank, but I wish it would dissolve all the way. I put some extra filter floss in the media rack to slow the filter, but that only slightly improves it. I don't know if this is a factor, but instead of drilling the airline into tube itself I hooked up an air intake knob on the elbow piece the brings the water into the canister. This is more aesthetic for my, but I can hear slight slushing when the air is going in. Very slight sound, but present none the less.
