I'm purchased a SERA CO2 reactor, bubble counter and continuous testing
kit in Australia.  The bubble counter uses glycerine for a slow steady
bubble count, the testing kit is mounted inside the tank and the reactor
use water flow to push CO2 down through a maze of angled pieces of
plastic.  I have found this to be very effective and have had to reduce
my bubble rate to counter the effect (not so easy with a DIY CO2 setup).
This was all contained in a single kit with all the tubing, connectors
and instructions.  I paid AUS$120 for it. Australian dollar equals about
$65 US cents at the moment.
