Looks nice. The only thing is it looks like an accidental nudge away from cracking. I don't think the filter tubing not being co2 resistant isn't a big deal. The co2 itself won't really touch the tubing. If the reactor is doing its job, then the only thing that will touch the filter tubing will be co2 enriched water and not the gas form of co2. It's the same if you're using any other sort of diffusor, co2 enriched water is still passing through your filter(I'm assuming you are using something along the sorts of a rhinox diffusor). As for algae build-up, it'll probably get some algae if there is some light hitting it. The algae shouldn't hinder performance on this thing as it would with the those ceramic disk diffusors. I've always had those rex-style reactors for my diffusion. Gonna try to mesh mod a pump for my next diffusion method. Hth...
