when you block the air line with diy, make sure the tube isn't siliconed in the bottle, as it will act as a pressure release if the chop stick clogs. Other than that, i've also used limewood/basswood air 'stones' successfully. You can get them easily from any salty LFS or online (although plecos love them as a treat)
