There is a lot of interest in heating water for different applications. In our case, the RMH is used for heating a greenhouse and we have always wanted to be able to safely heat the water in our fish tanks. Our solution is as follows:
Coiling a pipe around the outside of our drum (55 gallon stack). On one end of the pipe is a pump that pumps only air through the coil around the stack. The other end of the coil goes directly into our fish tank.
Does anyone think that the stream of hot air going into a mass of water will have any kind of significant impact on water temp?

Im not sure about the relationship between the bubbles rising and the heat escaping but I see how one came come to that conclusion. The bubbles, in this case, benefit to our AP system by adding more oxygen into the water.
I got this tall by not having enough crisco in my diet as a kid. This ad looks like it had plenty of shortening:
