I would think that as the bubbles got smaller, and their surface area to 
volume ratio increased, they would dissolve faster. I do not have any 
empirical data to back that up, but it just seems intuitive. It might be 
a tangent worth exploring at some point.

I too have some concern that the travel time in the water was 
particularly short. The bucket is about as deep as a 55-gallon tank 
though. I am thinking about repeating this in a very deep container 
(like a trash can).
