Does size matter...?

hey guys I just built my co2 regulator..
I pretty much followed Rex's guidlines..
the only difference is I made it 18" instead of 15"
It is going to be hooked up to my fluval 305..

So my question is, is my reactor too big for my application, or does it not even matter..
I just dont want any air pockets..

Thanks!

I don't think it's possible for a reactor of that design to be too big. It can be too small, though. If it's too small for the amount of CO2 you're injecting you'd get bubbles making their way into the tank.
