Mist out of Rex Grigg

Just finished making and setting up my rex grigg reactor and getting mist of bubbles out of it. The reactor is 18" with 2" diameter running on a eheim 2215. Anyone know what's causing this?

Did all of the air inside dissolve out or is it co2 that's misting?

Never show anyone your true potential. If you do, they will always expect it.

Do you have the co2 entering the top of the reactor and then the flow going from the top to the bottom? Also as said above if you havent had it running long it could be air still trapped inside.
