CO2 reactors with 25mm hosing?

I have a fluval fx6 that has a 25mm hose and the reactors i've managed to find so far only have 16mm sizes.

The biggest issue there is that it reduces flow rate

Build your own reactor to fit your hose size.

Reactor = reduced flow no matter what, you actually want back pressure after the reactor to dissolve more CO2, so you'll want to cut flow back anyway.
