You could probably do just fine with a tee in-line after
the filter to divert some of the output to the very
efficient TBarr reactor and send the rest directly to the
aquarium. This should lessen the lead the filter pump hs
to work against.
If the water flow through the reactor seems too low (i.e.,
you get a gas space that keeps getting larger until it
fills the reactor -- then you might have too high a CO2
flow rate due to a high CO2 loss rate and it would be
better to address that than to get more water through the
reactor. I say if. The reactor doesn't needn't a lot of
water to do it's job.
