[APD] CO2 reactor orientation

Is it determined that an external, "bio-ball-type" CO2 reactor needs to be
counter-current (i.e. water flow down while gas is injected at the bottom)
-?  I thought I had once read (can't remember where) that good diffusion may
also happen when gas and water are flowing up together.  It was probably a
discussion of protein skimmers, but the principle should be the same - how
to maximize the gas/water interface.  I ask because I want to add the
reactor inline to the output end of the canister, without looping up then
down.  What's your opinion?  Thanks...
