So you have Filter ---> Reactor ---> Pump. Curious why not install the pump prior to the reactor?

You may want to consider the use of a needle wheel pump with this large of tank.
You can benefit more ways than one.

1) Very fine mist of co2
2) Added flow from the extra pump that can be plumbed easily into an existing set of lines from another filter.
3)You wont have to worry about losing flow by adding something in-line versus a loss of flow from added component's.
I agree with this completely. After making my own reactor and installing inline, noticed a dramatic loss of flow from the filter. And the reactor didn't work as everyone praises they do. It just collected a large amount of Co2 at the top.
A needle wheel pump on this size of tank would work without any problems
