Most online fish supply stores have equipment like this.

Ok so i add an airstone to the tube to make smaller bubbles but as soon as the small bubbles are trapped in the bell, the break and fuse into one big bubble. Is this ok for them to dissolve in this form? I know that smaller bubbles tend to dissolve faster than that of larger ones. The larger bubble will break off once it gets a certain size and break a piece off about every 10 min

Well you didn't mention the bell to begin with. If that's the case the bubbles coming out of the tube make no difference, your CO2 diffusion is happening in the bell. Ideally you don't want any bubbles escaping the bell. You should look for a larger bell, one that will expose more of the bubble's surface to the water to allow more rapid diffusion. If you're using a part of a water bottle look into using the top of a 2 liter bottle. More surface area means better diffusion.

I'd leave the bell out where you can see it. No, bubble size doesn't matter since the bubbles are going into the bell. The second they're in the water by themselves is inconsequential because of the bell.
