Gallons per hour in a diffuser

I am going to build a DIY diffuser that shoots water through a piece of PVC with bioballs in it and the CO2 will be mixed with it. I have two questions, what diamerter pipe should be used where the water and CO2 mix with the bioballs? And how many gallons per hour would be reccomended?

Do a search for "reactor" in this DIY forum, you'll come up with more than you ever wanted to know.

I did, and not many people say how many GPH are being ran through their reactors.
