what dia. tube do i have to use for bubble counter?

i made an acrylic bubble counter at work today and realized after i was done the the diameter of the inlet tube might have to be a certain size. the inside diameter of the tube i used is 3/16" which could be considered a large bubble. is there a standard for this sort of thing?

My AM & JBJ bubble counters are 1" in diameter.

I don't know what Rex uses for his DIY bubble counters: http://www.bestaquariumregulator.com/CO2.html#bc

I use a 4" diameter 24 oz soda bottle for a separator bottle/bubble counter with my DIY CO2 system.
