Another helpful tip that I found on another forum. Instea of using an airstone which you'd have to replace, one user cut "teeth" into the airline tubing end that was in the lift tube. They claimed that this helped to break up the bubbles.
I can link to that thread if anyone would like a picture :)

That's a good little filter, much better than the Tetra 3i. It's available on Amazon for even less. And if you already have the pump....

Someone on a DIY CO2 thread claims using a cigarett filter makes the finest bubbles of all. There IS a limit. LoL
