small cerges reactor

Found this at my local Fleet Farm.
I want a Cerges reactor for my 20L but here is my question.

Is this too small? I'm thinking this smaller size would not affect my SunSun canister output? Not enough water to get a good CO2 mix?

Thoughts?

You don't need a valve on the bottom do you? maybe for easy mulm cleanup.
There's only one way to see if it works. Try it out.

No it just comes that way. I was thinking that is where the CO2 could go in? Its a threaded nipple, would just need to find either a barb that will thread on the inside or a cap to go on the outside.

no, you'd want the CO2 to come in at the beginning, the input.

I'm wondering what screen/mesh size would work best. Too fine and you start filtering out a lot of fine debris and it quickly plugs up. Too coarse and the bubbles slip through quickly. I'm assuming the bubbles aren't going to be inclined to bounce around in the water column like they would with the griggs reactor. They will quickly get pinned up against the mesh.
